40 SLIDES!!! Using BOTH film versions of Romeo and Juliet is a great teaching tool! In this Powerpoint you will find guides to both the Zeffirelli (1968) Romeo and Juliet film starring Olivia Hussey and the Dicaprio film (1996) that updates the play into a modern setting. This Powerpoint will serve as a fantastic tool for teachers looking to use the films either as a fun activity or a serious writing assignment (Included is a compare and contrast assignment that links the movie with the play). Either way, this Powerpoint will allow the students to understand the movies and have a good idea of what to look for in the films as they watch for connections to the play. These slides are jam-packed and include background on the movies themselves, connections between the film's characters and the play's characters and connections between the film's events and conflicts with the events and conflicts of the play. This powerpoint was A LOT of fun for my class to do and use! It is a great way to start a little project or have a fun and relaxing day!
