This Romeo and Juliet Body Biography Bundle is filled with all you need to teach and promote the amazing characters from the timeless play. Your students will experience the unique approach of using a collaborative poster, William Shakespeare’s play, Romeo and Juliet, textual evidence, research, and the body biography project!
The project bundle includes 7 characters from Romeo and Juliet. Give your students a relevant and modern experience while promoting the 4 C’s, character development, Shakespeare, and achievement. I adapted the body biography concept to align with citing textual evidence, character traits, research, and inference skills.
Includes 7 choices:
★ each poster is a character from the play. Featuring fun but mature images- appealing to all grades. Your students will add color and design.
★ The posters are 32 inches high by 10 inches wide. It requires 4 pages each.
★ Reflection Questions
★ Bonus – characterization pre-planning sheets for each character!
★ Student handout for your character study that explains each part of the body biography project (there are 12 parts).
★ Teacher set up directions, learning objective / learning outcomes, background, tips, and CCSS.
Here is your list:
What’s the Student Objective?
•Review what is supportive evidence.
•Define the literary term “character trait” and explore how to provide details that support their inferences (apply this skill similar to exploring a fictional text).
•Use the novel, class notes, and web resources to research the character (subject), then cite evidence to find accurate and descriptive word choice.
•Fill out the Romeo and Juliet Body Biography graphic organizer/poster.
Group work should promote:
•Intellectual understanding, abilities, and skills.
•Communication, cooperative and teamwork skills such as planning. management, leadership and peer support.
•Personal growth (increased self-esteem and self-confidence).
Directions are clear and explicit.
**This resource comes with one completed example for Juliet. You will find it in the zip folder. This resource works best with the original text, the translated / modern text, both film versions, and the graphic novel. You would just adapt your expectations for your students’ responses.
