Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare Writing Tasks: This 20 page download includes five different CCSS aligned writing tasks that include differentiated instruction and additional resources (graphic organizers and a suggested sentence starter resource sheet) that will help ESL, special needs, and struggling students.

This download addresses the three types of writing outlined by the Common Core: narrative, explanatory, and argumentative. There is one writing task for each Act, and each writing prompt (with the exception of the narrative writing prompt) includes a separate page of suggested sentence starters to help less proficient students complete each prompt. These tasks address writing standards 1, 2, and 3.

With this download, students will be able to write about their understanding of round and flat characters, blank verse, dramatic forms of speech (monologue, soliloquy, and aside), and dramatic irony.

This download includes:

- 5 writing prompts with built in ESL support and differentiation

- 4 sentence starters handouts to accompany four of the writing tasks

- 2 graphic organizers

- 1 blank verse worksheet

- 1 creative writing task
