Romeo and Juliet Tableau Vivant

I worked with three Grade 9 English teachers to develop this tableau vivant project where students depicted scenes from Romeo and Juliet. One teacher had done a similar project before where students took still images to represent scenes, but we took it up a notch by compiling them in iMovie, adding background music, having students recite the lines, and adding subtitles. This project really brought out a visually creative side to studying Shakespeare and allowed students who have strong photography and editing backgrounds really shine.
