Romeo and Juliet

Here are a few things I've been using the past four years for Romeo and Juliet

If you want to see more of my resources, visit this page and see the other wonderful things I have to offer.

  • Romeo and Juliet in Tweets
    • This is a fun activity that my kids enjoy doing. I usually do this after Act I and/or Act II so that there is some character interaction. They send out tweets as though they are a particular character in the play. This not only helps them put themselves in the minds of the characters but it also allows them to be creative (which is a win-win)
  • Soundtrack Project
    • Students create a soundtrack for the play. They have to think of songs that would work well with the songs and they write a paragraph as to why the song they selected would work well with the scene
    • My directions talk about a CD creation. I no longer do this since my school became a Google school. I now just have my students create a YouTube playlist.
  • Body Biography
    • This is by far my favorite activity for the students do to. It really forces them to analyse a character. The results are also usually very well done and make perfect artwork to laminate and hang on your walls to display student work (another win-win). Get the rubric here
  • Newsletter
    • You can also find this assignment on my Iliad resource page but here is how I did the newsletter in regards to Romeo and Juliet. I also have the directions I give the students on how to create a newsletter in Publisher. Again, this assignment can easily be done in Word.
