No Fear Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

My students need various levels and versions of "Romeo and Juliet" to read together while we study the classic author and tale.

My Students

My students come from many different countries across the globe. They speak multiple languages and have unique traditions and practices that I love to learn about from them first hand. Their experiences are both incredible and harrowing, and yet we all come together in the same classroom to find comfort, education, and a positive environment.

What makes these students so special is that they all have something to teach each other, and they always have something to teach me.

In a world of new technology always at our fingertips, it's meaningful for me to teach them about my love for books and how books always help us learn something new. I don't want books to be a foreign object to them, and a fun and inviting book can teach them incredible lessons on so many different levels.

My Project

The money that goes into this project will supply one simple thing: books. Although "Romeo and Juliet" can be intimidating for anyone, it's especially intimidating for young readers who are not on grade level, who are learning how to speak English, who struggle to learn, but who also strive for success.

By providing an alternative translation side by side to the classic story of "Romeo and Juliet", my students can comprehend the events within the story while also exploring some of Shakespeare's famous lines and writing style.

These books will reach my highest level learners, my special education students, and even some of my English Language Learners. They are an enormously important addition to our 9th grade curriculum.
