This is a easily accessible article introducing students to modern drama by discussing Harry Potter. It includes information on protagonists, antagonists, play structure, stage directions, dramatic question, etc. It also includes a note-taking sheet for students to use as they read the article. I have used this as an introduction before doing The Miracle Worker, but it could be used before studying any modern play.
