Modernizing a classic story such as Romeo and Juliet ignites students’ imaginations and allows them to better connect with the story and characters. Students will use this worksheet to update the setting of a chosen scene from Romeo and Juliet and then write a modern version of the dialogue. Note that this activity can be repeated for any number of scenes in the play.
