Make each student the director of their own vision of Romeo and Juliet with this fantastic project! This final project will draw on your students' creativity, writing, and research skills!
I designed this project as a way to help students engage with the play on a different level, applying the themes of the play to conflicts in our world.
The artistic elements and research components allow students who may favor creative expression or non-fiction reading to shine as well. I have taught with this project for five years and it has always yielded excellent and highly individual projects. Students focus in on an event or issue that they care about and use Romeo and Juliet as a platform for discussing that issue or event.
