Performance Task – Narrative Reading & Writing - Scripts – The Show Must Go On - ELA
In the The Show Must Go On - ELA Performance Task, students use their favorite play to practice reading and writing scripts. As scriptwriters, they must write an adaptation of the play thinking about alternate points of view. They read other plays with alternate points of view and design their own narrator. They then spend time improvising the play before writing their final script. The task ends with the opportunity to develop script or narrative writing in several ways.
