Product Description
ROMEO AND JULIET has so many life lessons for our students. Engage them in the study of the play by helping them see the many connections they can make between their lives and those of the characters.

This package includes a variety of responses, activities and reflections that are designed to help students make connections between the text and their own lives. I have presented them in a way that gives you options; you may choose to use all of them or only some of them. I have also included a slide show with most of the responses, if you prefer to have students write in their own journals, rather than on the sheets in this package.

You will find that each section begins with a page that has a quotation from the play that focuses on the issue students will discuss. This is followed by a page of instructions for you, and assignment options for the students. Again, they don’t all have to be done; choose based on how much time you want to spend on this. After each section, however, students should stop and reflect on how the play is reflecting real life issues and timeless elements of human nature.

Once the play is finished, you may choose to assign the essay, the project or both, depending on how much time you have to devote to the process.

I have included rubrics for the final assessments and answer keys where appropriate.
