American Lit: Pivotal Scene II

Standard: ELAGSE11-12RL7 Analyze multiple interpretations of a story, drama, or poem (e.g., recorded or live production of a play or recorded novel or poetry), evaluating how each version interprets the source text. (Include at least one play by Shakespeare as well as one play by an American dramatist.)

Learning Target: I can visualize different interpretations of a dramatic scene.

Opening Session: VOCAB QUIZ!!!!

Work Session: Let’s flip back in The Crucible and re-read the scene between Proctor and Elizabeth at the beginning of Act II.

Today we’re working in our Springboard books on page 139, activity 2.11. We are going to do the 4 charts for the second pivotal scene in the play, just like we did for the first. This time, however, you have to explain how your stage directions change the interpretation of the scene after we do each chart. Like we did last time, we will do the first chart together, then you should do the rest on your own, as well as answer the questions.

We will go over these together at the end of class!

Closing Session: Do the “Check Your Understanding” on page 141, explaining why you think one interpretation worked better than the others.

Assessment: Informal – book check

Differentiation: Process (scaffolding)
