    Description

    Allowing your students to perform rather than simply read a play brings a new dimension to a class study of a dramatic piece. When students get up and act out the parts for their audience –usually comprised of non-acting students in the class – it brings a sense of identifying with and ownership of their parts. They have a safe and small audience to perform in front of – which makes it real and more doable. Bring or encourage costumes, the use of musical instruments in the background, or sound effects, appoint a director if you like, create a lighting crew for act changes – they can even plan spotlighting particular lines using a couple of flashlights. Use a student cinematographer and/or photographer, if appropriate.

    1. "Everyman," the religious morality play is updated for today's teen. Medieval drama has never been this fun - share a taste of Medieval European culture and drama with your students, both middle school and secondary! With this purchase, you will receive BOTH the PLAY and lesson materials for a cross-curricular history and ELA experience. Students analyze a cultural experience reflected through this short work of literature (RL6).

    2. "The Girl in the Gap." Featuring foreshadowing. Your students will absolutely love these lessons! Based on the famous Japanese urban legend "The Girl in the Gap," this script is written specifically for teen enjoyment and English Language Arts CCSS. The product includes lots of tips and tricks for bringing readers' theatre to life in a middle or high school classroom, a mini-lesson on the types of foreshadowing, an original 6-page readers' theatre script, and 20 pages of resources to help your students learn the concepts - with a focus on foreshadowing.
