Scene from Lesson 4: Act 1, Scene 2 of Twelfth Night. Link in Materials Folder.
HOOK (15 minutes)
Can you imagine acting in a play that you have only read through once? Or can you imagine designing or directing a play that you have only read through once?
Let’s read through this scene from Twelfth Night.
Assign students to read through the short scene.
Let’s go back to our question. Our work would probably be pretty shallow, right? Often we have good first ideas, but our second, third, and fourth are sometimes even more creative and intriguing. Script analysis allows us to get a really deep look at the script (what is happening, the characters, etc) and then to do our work in a really meaningful way.
