AP Language: Acting Out a Scene, Day 2

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 work with a group to act out a scene from The Crucible, making intentional and conscious choices about staging, direction, the characters attitudes, etc.

Opening Session: The Crucible Introductory Scene

Work Session: You will have the entire class period today to work on your scene performances. Practice with your group! And seriously practice, guys. I don’t mind if you’re reading from a script when you perform, but you shouldn’t be acting like you’ve never scene the words before in your life, knowhatimean?

Closing Session: Journal reflection: how has it been working with your group? Did you have any disagreements? If so, how did you resolve them? If not, why do you think you worked so well together?

Assessment: Formal (performances will be graded)

Differentiation: Product (choice); process (scaffolding)

Homework: Read 20 minutes in your free choice book.
