Product Description
This document can act as either an in-class activity, or a take-home assignment. This exercise is best used after Act 5 Scene 2, when Friar John realizes his message to Romeo was not received. It can also be used at the very end of the play as a wrap-up.

Students are asked to choose 4 of 8 messages that are delivered in the play (these 8 messages are listed on the second page/back of the assignment for student reference). Using these four messages, they must then craft a "snap" for each.

This assignment requires students to think critically about the characters sending the snaps, as well as their relationship with the recipient. It also requires them to translate text from Shakespeare into modern English, and then again into text/chat speak. It is relevant, engaging, and offers students a creative way to present their understanding of key concepts.

This activity aligns with the following Common Core Standard:
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.9-10.3
Analyze how complex characters (e.g., those with multiple or conflicting motivations) develop over the course of a text, interact with other characters, and advance the plot or develop the theme.
