Guide your students to a deeper level of appreciation and understanding of drama and acting. The students will answer a series of questions about a character to help them become the character. They will pretend that they are a character now. They will think about their (the character's) past, present and future. They are encouraged to use their imagination as well as the script. Encourage the actors to have fun and be creative! This activity will help them make decisions about portraying and/or analyzing characters. This product is also available in .pdf format.
This activity may be used for acting classes, as well as literature and reading classes.
This may also be used for sustained silent reading (SSR), free voluntary reading (FVR), independent reading, and drop everything and read (DEAR).
