Plays are meant to be seen, not read. However, we cannot expect a 9th grade student to gain the full experience of Shakespeare by simply exposing them to the acted out play, and more often than not, we don't have the opportunity every year to view it. (And let's face it, the Zeffirelli version of the play only goes so far because of its disconnectedness with modern students. Men it tights? Yikes!) In the 10 years I have been teaching Romeo and Juliet, I have learned that more is more, not less is more. The more I expose them to every possible medium that incorporates Shakespeare into it, and allows them to develop an independence with his language, the more success and passion I see displayed in the classroom. There is no greater sense of achievement from a teacher's perspective than seeing a student do the mini-celebration dance because he/she "actually gets it now."
