Students in Allison Cameron's Grade 9 Marymount Academy English class recently participated in a unique Shakespeare lesson.

Cameron had each of her students create a mask reflecting their book study on Romeo and Juliet. Students brought in different sorts of crafts and decorations to create unique masks.

"When you give students the opportunity for hands on learning, they are much more
likely to connect to the lesson," Cameron stated.

"The students have fun and get to be totally creative, all the while they are really learning on a deeper level. It is a great way to engage the student and make the lessons come alive."
