Need a script that is easy for your students to understand and that is portable so they can stand when acting it out? Here you go!
This includes a PDF file of the following:
Act 1 Scene 1: From where Romeo and Juliet talk for the first time to the end. [1.5 pages]
Act 2 Scene 1&2: Romeo returning to the Capulet's and the famous balcony scene. [2 pages]
Act 5 Scene 3: The death scene [5 pages]
I typed these and they are a mix of Shakespeare and modern English, but does not have every line like No Fear Shakespeare. It is mainly modern, but I threw a few "thee", "thou", "dost", "haste", and "wilt"s in there for my sanity. I use it on my standard and lower level students and it saves time and frustration. It also looks more manageable to them.
If you have any questions, let me know!
