Hook: One more video. The “why is Brecht relevant today” video. Discuss- Do agree that Brecht is still relevant? Why or why not?
Step 1: Make sure everyone knows what is expected for the pitch presentation. Re-explain instructions from last time.
Step 2: Get students into their pairs, give them time to work on their pitch presentations. Have the students sign up for an order to present in. Give them notice of how much time they have left.
Step 3: Presentation time. Remind the class that they are now in role as the board of producers. Give every partnership 2 minutes to present, and then 1 minute for questions from the class. If students are missing some information or not incorporating Brechtian information very well, make sure to pose some questions to them during the question time about how their concept incorporates Brechtian techniques.
Step 4: Together as a class, discuss the presentations. Have the class vote on which production they would like to fund as a class to produce.
