romeo and juliet unit 2016
After reading Shakespeare's famous drama, Romeo and Juliet, reader's theatre style, students got to shake it up! In groups, they picked a theme from the play that really resonated with them, a scene that portrayed that theme, and a conflict that happened in another part of the world, in another era. What is amazing about Shakespeare's works is how much the life lessons transcend time: students showed this by recreating scenes set to different conflicts, and ultimately showing the divisiveness of conflict and the power of love!
