Reflection: Checks for Understanding Creating Powerpoint Presentations as Summative Assessment of Romeo and Juliet (Day 2 of 2) - Section 1: Activator


Many students said Romeo is in debt to the Capulets for meeting Juliet at their party. One student said having a debt is a "bad thing" and that Romeo new this was going to cause trouble in his life.  What I liked about their answers is that they were thinking before they responded.

Explaining the meaning of Shakespeare's quotes can be a challenge for some of my struggling readers.  I find that repetition helped them to become familiar with the original text but even though this was not the first time they saw these quotes, some students still struggled with its meaning and others responded with an explanation that demonstrated a beginning of their understanding.  I've come to realize that when interpreting Shakespeare, to understand the meaning you do not have to understand every single word or phrase in the play or sonnet.
