Literature circle role sheets with a Romeo and Juliet twist! If you’re looking for a way to spice up your literature circles (or even use them for the 1st time), try these themed role sheets to minimize student boredom and keep the discussion moving.
This kit includes role sheets for each group member (5 roles per group), expectations or “family rules” to keep things under control, common core standards, grading rubrics for self and peer assessment and teaching ideas I’ve used that you may find interesting.
Used in a HS ESOL/ELL class, these are also an a great way to give access to Romeo and Juliet to limited English speakers.
Roles include: Discussion Leader (Lord and Lady Montague or Capulet), Talking Smack/Word Wizard (Mercutio and Tybalt), Connector (Friar), Our Hero/Passage Finder (Romeo and Juliet) and The Bard/Summarizer (William Shakespeare).
