This unit is designed for a high school English class and can be used with students in 10th through 12th grade. The lessons are made for classes that are 50 minutes long. The unit is based on classes that have about 25 students, and the small group activities will consist of five groups of five students. The unit prior to this one will have been a unit in understanding Shakespeare's language and the format of his plays--"Romiette and Julio" is used to bridge the gap between Shakespeare and modern themes of love, prejudice, and violence to which students can relate. The unit first offers a class description/breakdown of assessment and then provides lesson plans, study guide questions/discussion questions, quizzes/test, and a bibliography. It gives educational objectives, related content areas, materials needed, motivational focus, teaching procedures, follow-up activities, and assessment/evaluation information.
