Romeo & Juliet Project Description

Romeo & Juliet Project Grading Rubric

I am also offering an extra credit assignment for students who need some extra help this semester/six weeks. The assignment is to watch the movie It's a Wonderful Life and write a one page movie review of the classic film. Students will need to look at sites such as Rotten Tomatoes to get an idea of how to write a movie review. This assignment can replace the lowest test grade or the student's two lowest daily work grades. This assignment must be turned in by January 8th.

Semester Exams will be on January 13th and 14th. Students do not have school on January 15th.

As always, feel free to email me if you have any questions.
