We remember what we do more than what we hear. I’ve written a handful of skits (student performed dramas) to get my students out of their seats and living history. The scripts are historically accurate (with assignment included) but also have a lot humor. Of course, the most entertaining part is simply getting your class to perform. Skits unlock the potential for memorable moments that go far beyond the written script. These assignments are great for every history class that needs some action. Included are: directions for preparing and performing your skits, the script itself, and an assignment that students complete during the performance.
