This writing packet has 15 writing prompts that address Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare. I have included these questions in two formats - one is editable, and one is in pdf.
The questions are laid out with an attractive background that older students will appreciate. Writing space is provided for students. You should be able to print (as many as needed!) and teach.
I have also included the writing prompts in an editable .doc. Plug these into a test, quiz, or extension activity.
An answer key is not included, but a rubric is. You will see the rubric in this file's preview.
When I teach Romeo and Juliet, I do not use every one of these writing prompts. The variety allows for differentiation, student choice, and options for make-up work. Sometimes I post these essay questions around the room and let students rotate and make comments. These writing prompts should be diverse enough for many needs.
