A super fun way to introduce the play Romeo and Juliet by having your students complete the first handout and give their parents the second one to fill out. The parent and student can have a hilarious conversation about what the student believes to be the characteristics of his/her "perfect mate," versus what the parent would like for them. I've received TONS of positive feedback on this assignment! A lot of parents love the opportunity to interact with their student for a school assignment and have had a few good laughs during the process :)
***Check out the Romeo and Juliet complete unit in my TPT store which includes this assignment and many other resources at a discounted bundle price. I also offer a wide variety of 6th-12th grade literature selections. Happy teaching!
