I think this lesson has a lot of promise. I remember studying Romeo and Juliet in high school and we had a similar final project. However, I think doing some of this work in between reading the acts would have been helpful. I was a little confused by some of the collaboration work: it says students will be texting or tweeting each other, but it doesn't say which areas they will be doing this (during the reading or during the final project). I think you could also add a component where they tie the R&J story to other works, both Shakespearean and more modern.

Technical Remarks:

Just a little more clarification on where the group work would take place, if anywhere. I think some of the technology related projects may need a little background work with some students who are less familiar but many could pickup the skills easily and help others in the class.

I like that you are taking Shakespeare and using web 2.0 skills to create active learning for the students. I think that the students will definitely gain understanding through a discussion with each other via blogs or tweets, but are they discussing the material in class prior to beginning the online discussion? I'm a little unclear on how the lesson actually progresses from the ID lesson plan. Do the students work individually on the final project or will they be in groups? How do you "translate" the information prior to the blogs/tweets?

Technical Remarks:

Depending on the school, not all of the students will have the web 2.0 skills for all of these activities. They should definitely learn them prior to graduating high school, but I know that the freshman in my district won't all know how to manage an e-portfolio or create a podcast. These are great tools to use for this lesson, but the teacher may need to take class time to teach these skills.
