This project is a fun and creative way to get middle school drama students to work together! Students will select one of the songs provided in class, brainstorm, and write a scene that explains what could have taken place before the singer(s) sang the song. What prompted the singer to sing this? What just happened? Student writers/actors learn that no scene or song happens in isolation; something must have prompted it! Brainstorming, writing, rehearsing, and performing: this project has it all! My packet has easy-to-follow directions, the lyrics of great storytelling songs, and a clear rubric.
