After reading and analyzing the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, students will take the role of costume designers and research their assigned time period. Students will make an organized collage of images and information of the time period. Each student will fill in Costume Design Worksheets and design five costumes. They will design one costume for each of the characters they choose from the options that are provided on the worksheet. Students will present their collages and justify their designs to the class as they are filmed.
Students will have one class period to respond to several assessment questions. Then they will have three class periods to read and analyze the play, and then to analyze the characters using the Costume Design Worksheet. Students will have one class period to research their time period and create their time period collage, two class periods to create their original costume designs, and then have two class periods to plan and present their costume designs to the class.
