    Bundle Description

    SAVE!! February is Black History month! Here's a great way to celebrate by studying the life journeys of two popular performing artists--Denzel Washington and Audra McDonald? These four lessons, two close reading and two one pager assignments are similar but different, depending upon the needs of the teacher.

    In addition, a teacher could use these as assignment for those students who are distance learning. #DistanceLearningTPT

    Denzel Washington and the Audra McDonald One Pager Assignments

    The students research questions about either artist's life, their journey to Broadway and various accolades they've received while practicing growth mindset. Finally, using a One Pager assignment, the student designs either artist's life.

    All is needed is the internet.

    Many teachers combine these biographies with others of mine on actors Lin Manuel Miranda, actress SAVE!!Meryl Streep or designer Ming Cho Lee. Or they tie it to a lesson about the Tony Awards at: Tony Awards Lesson

    If your students need to do a research project, the Places Please lessons are good ones to introduce the unit. Perhaps more students would pursue a career in the theater arts if we show them what is possible for them?

    In addition, these bios. are a great spring board for discussion concerning goals, tenacity, determination and professionalism.

    There is more to theater than just improvisation, plays and games. I teach theater with a twist. This is an example of what I mean.
