Lesson 7: Practice & Preview
Objective: Students will be able to prepare and improve their final performance of the Crispian speech by completing a rehearsal bingo assignment.
Hook: Review Techniques
Split class into 3 groups. Assign each group a term/tool Shakespeare used in his writing. They are responsible for review and teaching the class the technique.
Ask students why we translate the speech into modern English?
Activity : Translations
Translate the Crispian Speech into Modern English. Each translated line should be written next to the Shakespearean Line. This will be handed in for points for the final.
Activity: Rehearsal Bingo
Have students copy the bingo chart into their drama journals. They should aim for a blackout of the chart using bingo lines.
For the final students will be required to perform their speeches and hand in their written work.
5 points for written inflections, 5 points for Iambic Pentameter, and 5 points for Translations
Allow students the rest of class to finish their bingo charts.
Allow time to go over the performance rubric before the end of class.
