No doubt “Romeo and Juliet” would have been a completely different story if it had been written nowadays. In 3º ESO students have tried to reflect how much things have changed since the 16th century, especially and luckily for women, at least in the most developed countries.
After reading the play, students from 3º ESO C had to choose their favourite scene and adapt it to modern times. It has been a long process, but, on the whole, the experience has been valued very positively by the students and their teacher, and most importantly “Romeo and Juliet” will never be forgotten (students’ words). Obviously, this makes the teacher feel over the moon and Jupiter 🙂
The first step was to write the script of their scene in a google document and share it with their teacher:
The second step was to record their video and upload it to either Youtube or vimeo. Here are the results. Congratulations to all of them. They’ve done a great job:
