The Epic Romeo and Juliet Project

After a few months of hardwork and dedication, the collaboration between Van Meter High School and Grosse Pointe has produced an amazing version of Romeo and Juliet that I am happy to share with you.

Grosse Pointe South students wrote, acted, directed and did everything possible to film Acts 1,3 and 5 while the students of Van Meter did the same for Acts 2 and 4. I'm very proud of what they accomplished and wanted to share the final product with all of you.

If you are a South teacher and you recognize any of the student actors, please compliment them. It wasn't easy to get in front of students and act out one of Shakespeare's most famous plays.

Smartboard Resources

Thanks to  Melissa Edwards and her blog Technology: Figuring Out How The Pieces Fit for finding this resource and sharing it. Thanks Melissa!

Here is a link to some great SmartBoard resources. This is for all grades and covers the ranges of subjects. If you are having trouble finding sites to use on your SmartBoard that will keep your students involved in the lesson. Take a look around these different pages and pick out what you like.

P.S. Livebinders is really awesome and I use it in my classes. The kids like having the information in one place. Check out this post if you are curious about Livebinders.

- Give it a try!
