                           "Romeo and Juliet."     Highlight or italicize or bold the three sentences in your review that are imitations. 

                            Use the Always/Sometimes/ Never rubric that your class created.  This will be your grading sheet.

               you feel to be the most to blame for the deaths in the play.  Assume the role of a District Attorney.  For each of the characters

               you selected, state what you would charge them with, then use specific details from the play to defend and support your charge.   

               For each piece of evidence you present, explain why a jury would be convinced towards a conviction for the charge you selected.
