Romeo and Juliet, Sociogram

What is a Sociogram? A sociogram is a visual representation of the social relationships in a story. It is a tool used to explore the web of relationships present in a play, such as Romeo and Juliet. A well thought out sociogram helps the creator to make sense of the characters, their relationships, the conflict in the story, as well as the social setting of the story. Instructions 1. You must include the following characters and families in your sociogram: Romeo, Juliet, Capulets, Montagues, The Nurse, Friar Lawrence, Benvolio, Tybalt, Lord Capulet, Lady Capulet, Lord Montague, Lady Montague, Mercutio, the Prince of Verona, and Paris. 2. Place the main character(s) at the center of the diagram. 3. Let the physical distance between characters reflect the closeness or distance between the characters. 4. Let the size/shape/symbol of a character metaphorically represent each personality, importance, power, or lack of power. 5. Show the direction of a relationship by an arrow or line. The weight or appearance of the line should also show the quality of the relationship. 6. Themes or the tone of the play should have a presence as well. Represent this through color or visual symbols. This can be a fun and creative assignment, but it should represent your knowledge of the play.
