Reflection: Checks for Understanding Complex Character Analysis: Role of Families in Romeo and Juliet - Section 4: Student Learning Activity


I felt that this section of my lesson was effective because the combination of them watching the video, reading quotes, writing, and group discussion addressed many learning styles.  When asked if they thought that Lord Capulet would react as harshly as Juliet thought. a few students refereed to the interaction between her father and Tybalt during the party as evidence that he was more rational minded.  They also said that her father still would be "really pissed off knowing that a boy was secretly meeting with his daughter."   They got it!

Objective: SWBAT analyze how complex characters develop over the course of the play, interact with other characters, and advance the play's theme through discussion and journal writing.

Big Idea: Is Romeo and Juliet just another story about organized crime? How I help students dive into the characters and theme of Love and Violence.
