Looking for a way to incorporate more active participation in literature?
This unit is a step-by-step guide to guide students to create a script, rehearse and workshop their scripts with peer feedback, and create a final performance based on literature. This style of performance script, which includes all of the narrative, is adapted from the Book-It Theatre style pioneered by the professional Book-It Theater in Seattle, WA.
This is a very flexible project - could be used for a drama class or English class, with individual book choices or whole-group novels. Modifiable for younger students.
Included is a 4 week unit with lesson plans and materials, including rehearsal and workshop protocol, a rubric for performances and a final reflection. Also includes sample scripts. Could be expanded or shrunk depending on your needs.
