This is a week long lesson on Drama via a short play by Milcha Sanchez Scott.

Play Synopsis:
In DOG LADY, the setting is a barrio street in Los Angeles, where a young Hispanic woman is in training for a marathon sponsored by a local church. Egged on by a dogged suitor, she is unable to achieve her best until the local curandera, or faith healer, a loony old woman who lives amid a horde of dogs, endows her with magic powers—which enable her to run swiftly on all fours and easily out distance her fellow competitors.

Latinx students will immediately recognize the characters and the occasional Spanglish. Everyone will be pulled in by discussions of judging a book by its cover and trying to live up to everyone's expectations.

Included in the packet (as an editable PowerPoint):
-Graphic Organizers for making inferences based on of stage directions and dialogue
-A sheet for drawing the set of play
-A Graphic Organizer for making inferences based on the setting
-A "paper doll" activity to guide character analysis
-A personal dictionary for defining new words you encounter
-A list of Spanish words and their English translations for non-Spanish speaking students
