Romeo and Juliet
Scene-By-Scene Dioramas and Presentations


As we have learned, the words that Shakespeare used often helped create a sense of mood and setting. As part of your final unit project you will create a diorama that will depict one of the scenes from the play. This will:

· provide a whole-class review of the play’s plot
· use your creativity so that you successfully capture the characters’ personalities and mood of your assigned scene

We will have an in-class demonstration on how to assemble your diorama; the rest is up to you. Determine the most important part of your scene, then do your best to visually represent the overall mood of the scene and the natures and tones of the characters. The artwork must be your own and may not be computer generated or created with toys like action figures.

You must also turn in with your diorama an index card on which you include a printed version of the lines that correspond to your scene. (Be sure to have at least 15 lines.)

You will receive a combined total grade for this assignment. The first grade is for your diorama and will be based on neatness, completeness, accuracy to plot, and representations of mood and character. This grade is worth up to 40 points.

The second grade is a presentation grade. You will be graded on public-speaking skills, including organization of content, eye contact, voice, posture and enthusiasm. This grade is worth up to 40 points. It is a very good idea to rehearse your presentation, and remember to make tutorial arrangements if you need extra help.


Your presentation must include:

· a verbal summary of your scene (include all characters and their actions)
· an verbal explanation as to why your diorama is an accurate representation
of the highlight (or most important part) of your scene (refer to plot, color, symbols, gestures, etc.)

· a dramatic reading of the lines that correspond to your diorama (which are to be printed out and attached to the diorama – 15 line minimum)

directions to create the diorama:

*Note: all presentations will begin Monday, April 20th (first day back from break)
