The following is a Sociology activity for the topic of Social Structure. For this activity students are assigned the task of creating and developing three skits in which they act out three "Roles" for an assigned "Status". This activity comes with a detailed Grading Rubric which can be adjusted t suit your classroom needs.
On Day 1, Students work in groups of 4-6 people to design their three skits, then spend time practicing and creating props, filling in the required "min-Formative Assessment" which goes along with the activity as one of the requirements.
On Day 2, groups perform their three skits in front of the class. I usually add the extra task of having the class guess the three "Roles" that each group is acting out from their assigned "Status".
I run this "Skit Activity" every year and students love this and really truly get into it. For extra kicks I allow the audience to vote on which "Status" gave the best performance based on creativity, humor, and correct application and the winning group I give extra credit to.
This activity pairs well with my Social Structure PPT and Social Structure Formative Assessment. Both of which I use prior to this activity and both are available in my TPT store.
