Product Description
May your troubles melt like lemon drops. This opening scene in the Wizard of Oz (I call it the Cyclone Scene) includes the classic, nasty visit from Elmira Gulch and ends with the house descending so unfortunately on her wicked sister in Oz. This product has the text and a screenplay or script of that scene, which makes for a good contrast, plus related activities. The mood and emphasis of the text and movie is different, especially the characterization of Uncle Henry and the surrealism of the cyclone scene in the movie. I showed clips from YouTube of these scenes; you can also show the movie, which can be streamed for $2.99 from Amazon. It can make for a memorable several days or week -- students love the movie, of course, and the universal symbolism of the rainbow and storm helps students understand how symbolism works.

Reading scripts helps make our classes more student-centered. It engages them on a peer-to-peer basis, improves subsequent class discussions, while it gives you feedback on their reading and acting / dramatization skill levels. If you like having your students read scripts of the stories they read in the usual way, then look around my "shop" further and follow me at TPT. -- Thanks, John C.
