Students will demonstrate understanding of Greek theatre plays and culture by performing a scene in our class theatre festival.
copies of feedback sheets for each student,
Hook (10 min):
Write the words Ancient Greece on the board and have students come up and write something they know about Greek Theatre.
We have now gone through our unit on Ancient theatre and look how much you have learned. It is really cool to see the details you remember and I am confident that you could carry on an educated conversation about Greek theatre as well as use some of their traditions in contemporary performance pieces as half of you have shown and half are about to show.
Activity 1 (15 min):
Allow the groups to work for 15 min, gather themselves, prep any make-up/costuming, etc. The scenes who performed last time can work on their reflection.
Activity 2 (40 min):
Have each scene go up in order of the sign-up on the board. After all the groups have performed make sure and point out their successes and or things the next performers should take note of. Then have the scenes stand at the front of the class and have the students give them feedback for each of the scenes.
Activity 3 (20 min):
Allow the scenes to go through the feedback together as a group knowing that they need to submit a one paragraph response (informal, hand-written) from what they learned performing/reading the feedback. While they are reviewing their feedback, the first scenes who performed can work on their reflection response.
