Quote Wheel: Romeo and Juliet Revision

A simple resource I made for my Year 11 students. They need to learn key quotes for their exam texts, and this resource helps them to organise their revision into more manageable chunks. The wheel is labelled with major themes and motifs, then students simply have to find four key quotes for each category and fill them in on their wheel. I advise my students to keep this visible at home or in their folders so that they can look at their key quotes often.

Romeo and Juliet PrologueQuick View

Romeo and Juliet Prologue

The Prologue written in emoji form, used as a puzzle for pupils to tease out the meaning. Intended as a fun starter or plenary, by the time pupils get to the last line it can prompt some interesting responses. Leads in to the 'Shakespeare isn't English' debate as some feel the same about emojis but kids use them happily. There is an accompaning PowerPoint with a sort the prologue activity too, to get them thinking about thyme schemes and what happens in the play too. All together could make a complete first lesson on Romeo and Juliet.

Romeo and Juliet - The Balcony Scene

This is a lesson that I taught to a top set year 9 class and was rated outstanding. It could easily be used for Y11 as it is very challenging! The lesson focuses on Romeo's soliloquy and introduces students to astrological theories in order to analyse language more fully. They are encouraged to make links to the rest of the play throughout. The lesson is differentiated by splitting students into pathways for the main activity and providing a modern translation of the soliloquy. There are also notes for teachers to suggest routes of questioning to encourage students to extend their thinking. If you like the look of this lesson, please see the 22 lesson scheme it is taken from - a bargain at £16.

 Romeo and Juliet - Character Analysis: RomeoQuick View

Romeo and Juliet - Character Analysis: Romeo

PPT identifies key reminders about Romeo's character & outlines all the key scenes Romeo appears in. I got my students to create a poster presentation based on one of the acts and then their small group presented their poster of analysis for that act back to the rest of the class. Suggested things to cover on their poster include: personal impressions of Romeo, key quotations, any patterns of behaviour or changes in behaviour, relationships with other characters. Once all groups had presented their poster (ensuring all groups had covered all the named acts & scenes) I photocopied their work so each child had analysis of Romeo across the whole play. This activity could be easily replicated for other characters. I encouraged them to be as creative as possible - lots of coloured paper, sticking bits on, creating wordles etc. My class liked a bit of creativity after the heavy going of mock exam prep!
