History Buy the Book:
Students are required to not only demonstrate that they have read the play but can critically interpret its meaning and consider a deeper analysis of character, plot and theme. In this activity, students are assigned a scene from the play and they must create a modernized version of that particular scene. This assignment is interactive as the audience participates by "freezing" the scene (when needed), to ask for an aside interpretation and/or analysis by the players. This assignment takes approximately one week with preparation and execution, depending on class size. Rubric is included.
