Romeo and Juliet Email

 

Email: Project Title:Get Advice From Verona R&J: Web Site Used:

Subject and Grade Level: High School Students

Standards: LA 12.2.1, etc.

Suggestions: Students are used to sending email. You can choose from three paths within the writing requirements.
1. Write using traditional writing conventions. (Complete sentences, paragraphing, letter form, etc.)
2. Write using the Instant Messaging Slag that kids are used to.
3. Write in the “old style” language of Romeo and Juliet. (It might be easier for them to write it in regular style and then “translate” into old English.

Lesson Plans/Directions:

Write to a (Fictional) Love Expert Juliet! “The Juliet Club, the Verona-based organization that answers the thousands of letters addressed each year to Shakespeare’s most romantic heroine, awards the “Dear Juliet” prize on Valentine’s Day to the most compelling letters received during the previous year. The “Dear Juliet” prize recognizes the spontaneity of the writers who turn to Juliet to express their feelings, ask for advice or simply feel the need to talk about love. An email message can even be sent to Juliet at info@julietclub.com. Very few letters, oddly enough, are sent to Romeo.
