This fun lesson focuses on a play-writing exercise--the monologue and beginning acting. Students select an object indicative of the Easter holiday which the teacher provides from this lesson and write a monologue speaking as or using the object. Then, they design the object on their own paper and perform their monologue. Students don't even realize they are studying play-writing. Just copy and go!

HOW SHOULD I USE THIS LESSON IN MY CLASSROOM? This lesson was created for a creative dramatics, introduction to theater or creative writing class in Language Arts.

If you are hosting an open house for your students' parents, this would be a nice performance for them to see.

The product includes:

  • Letter to teacher with directions for the lesson
  • Teacher's script-what I say and how I say it
  • Six design pages— three in color and three in black and white
  • Monologue examples
  • Video clip example
  • Extension Activities

No prep for the teacher except copying and to cue up a video clip.

Comprehensive? You bet!

Created by an award-winning, veteran drama teacher of thirty-eight years.
