This is a pre-reading activity for William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet intended to get students thinking about the idea of relationships and the influence that their parents do -- or should-- have on them. Students complete a survey about their "perfect match" and then give a similar survey to their parents to complete. Parents are instructed to seal the survey in an envelope and give it back to their child. The students then open their parents' answers in class. Once they read and compare their parents' answers with their own, they complete a reaction writing activity.
