New York Director comes in all dressed up to announce the show and to thank the Mountain View Students for filling in last minute to give us an amazing Broadway Musical Review.  She reaches into a top hat and pulls out the first act to perform.



Transition:  The director is done and the teacher comes back to grade the students.


Directions:  The teacher reminds the students of the grading sheet she is using and that they have a copy of it too so they know how they will be graded. 


Modeling:  The teacher models how each act should present themselves, how to use their body and voice, and what they will be graded on.


Discussion:  After each act the students have a chance to discuss the process and finished product of the act.



The director comes back and again thanks everyone for their tremendous job and talented acts, and invites them to perform anytime for her on Broadway.
