PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This fun 15-minute script, by award-winning playwright Gyda Arber, is based on the true story of the Seneca Falls Convention of 1848, which launched the women's suffrage movement! Featuring attendees Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, Amelia Bloomer, and Frederick Douglass, with Susan B. Anthony as the narrator, this play is historically accurate (though much shorter, of course, and the language has been simplified) and features a good deal of audience participation (so there's no time to be bored!). Suitable for guided reading, a stage production, or readers theater. Includes Actor's Character Worksheet, Discussion Questions, Answer Key, and the complete text of the Declaration of Sentiments and Resolutions. A great addition to your Women's History Month/American Heroes curriculum!

On  June 19, 2011Ms. JJ (TpT Seller) said:
My fourth graders performed this play to great success in our school auditorium. They enjoyed memorizing their lines, rehearsing, and learning about the history of the women's movement. My students enjoyed the camaraderie of being performers and after the experience was over, they continued to use their performance skills in the classroom (including using their "stage" voices and speaking clearly). Buy this play, it's a real crowd-pleaser--fun to watch and perform.
