PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This PDF is instructions for conducting a dumb show with your students. It's a great way to review the major events of the novel, practice summary writing, and allow teachers to assess student understanding at the same time. The best part is that is gets students out of their seats, working with others, and performing.

To create a dumb show: After students have done the group work of writing summaries, I bring a bedsheet into school from home and use that as a curtain. Students create "freeze frame" scenes that represent major events of the chapter. When the curtain drops, a narrator reads the summary of the chapter. Sometimes I use the time to allow the audience to comment on the scene, recalling what happened, THEN allowing the narrator to confirm by reading the summary.

Students LOVE performing and I never have issues with audience participation. The class loves to watch and shout out what they remember.

This PDF includes these basic instructions and graphic organizer space for students to work with their partners. I've also broken the novel up so that you can do with with four groups, but depending on the size of your class, you can change it to fit your needs.

It also includes a partner rating rubric so that students can rate the work of their peers while in groups.
