This is a cumulative and creative summative assessment for Romeo and Juliet.
Students are asked to create a "soundtrack" for the play by selecting a song for each of the 5 Acts. They are asked to provide lyrics, use textual evidence and reference key themes. A graphic organizer and a self-assessment checklist is provided. This assignment was just the right level of challenge for my Grade 10 classes, but it could work in Grade 9 or 11, and for another Shakespearean play as well. A link to a finished example is provided below.
Curricular Competencies/Learning Outcomes/Standards:
- Students will demonstrate comprehension of each act in the play
- Students will make connections to key themes and scenes in the play
- Students will use cited quotes to support their analysis
- Students will use correct MLA citation (I.ii.32)
