Shakespeare too confusing? Rewrite it! Small groups each take on one act of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, repurposing it into more modern language. They summarize the act as a group and then act out the basic play using created scripts, blocking, and costuming.

This is a fun way to get kids engaged in a sometimes-intimidating piece of literature, and could easily be rewarded by watching the 1996 film adaptation.
