This assignment is a more hands-on approach to having students identify themes in Romeo and Juliet. The handout provides students with four possible themes of Romeo and Juliet and asks students to decorate the front of the provided bookmark to reflect at least two of the themes.
Students are required to explain on the back of the bookmark how the pictures, drawings, or symbols on the front of the bookmark represent two of the themes of the play.
Feel free to encourage your honors students to identify one additional theme not named on the handout to reflect on the bookmark. Also considering laminating the bookmarks for students to keep.
