Description

This mini-project combines elements of character analysis, creative writing, and student performance in a fun activity for the end of Act IV of Romeo and Juliet.

Note: This activity is most successful when students have already covered the following concepts:

• Iambic pentameter
• Elements of the Shakespearean sonnet

After reading through Act IV of Romeo and Juliet, students will complete a character analysis of one character. Then they will write an original soliloquy in iambic pentameter from that character's perspective. Finally, students will embody the character in a performance of the original soliloquy.

An example soliloquy and helpful tips for writing in iambic pentameter are included.
