    I had the pleasure of watching a break dance “Romeo and Juliet” at our local theater. They used the original dialogue. It was wonderfully fun.

    1. One thing I always try and impress upon my students is the wonderfully versatile nature of Shakespeare’s work. One of the reasons he is so timeless is because the themes he explores are as relevant today as they were when he wrote them. Add to that that the lyricism of his work is brilliant, and Shakespeare will continue to be a staple of Western culture (and beyond) for centuries to come!

        Absolutely. What adolescent can’t relate to parents trying to thwart love?

  2. Romeo and Juliet Literary Elements Doodle Notes is designed for students in grades 8-10. This resource was created to help students tackle the literary elements in Romeo and Juliet by asking them to write a definition of the term, determine its etymology, create a visual representation of the term, find three examples from the text, and doodle (if they feel so inclined). Two sets of notes (one guided and one not), plus a corresponding PowerPoint, make this differentiated and no-prep.

    FREE 8 line excerpt from As You Like, “Blow, Blow Thou Winter Wind.” (Act III, Scene 7) It is also useful for any poetry unit, for Poetry Month, for a mini-lesson on literary terms, for a wintry day (perhaps before break) or even prep for a standardized reading test poem interpretation question. A copy of the lines with six questions (one page) plus brief background for the scene and a modern text version in the answer key. Grades 6-10.

  4. Hi everyone! I have a curriculum unit for William Shakespeare’s Othello which is geared toward eleventh grade. My curriculum unit is a two week length package of everything you will need to teach this play! My favorite activity is the Response Booklet which features a set of response questions that students must answer in their booklet every day which aids writing practice. Here is the link:

  5. Hello! I have a creative writing project to use while reading Romeo and Juliet (typically an English 1 or Freshman English text). Students create their own servant character (either in the Montague or Capulet household), and the product includes prompts for each scene. The “servants” retell the action of the play and make predictions about what happens later! It’s a great way to get students to summarize the action of the play and engage them in the reading!
