Theatre Teachers, pre print these table top instructions for that day when you planned for that project to take five days and the kids finished in four, when the pep rally that was supposed to last for three periods only lasted for one, when you are locked in place for three hours, when you lost your voice, when you feel like death, but woke up too late to schedule a sub. Yes, we have all been there. This activity can save your butt every time, it can take as long as you want or as short as you need.
Imagine if you only had to say one sentence the whole class period? Ask your students to devise and perform a scene in a group from a list ten sci-fy, dynamic lines!
Example of a given line: "I demand to speak to a human!"
The Chosen One SCI-FY File Includes:
Lesson Plan: Prep Steps and Extended Time Activities
One Page Table Handout: Lesson Objective, Behavior Expectations, Clear Challenge Instructions, 10 lines for students to create a scene around, Thinking Questions
