fictional or whatever the
group wants ( MUST BE
SCHOOL APPROPRIATE)

characters, setting and the
plot of the scene

Reflections
(What went well; what could
be improved)

Ask the group of students


what it was like to instruct
their classmates?
Did they have trouble letting
go of their own scene they
had made and allowing
another group to perform it?
The students really liked being
able to create dramatic pieces
for their classmates to
perform
The consensus was that it was
difficult to see other groups
perform something they
wanted to perform and often
times groups would get
anxious if a group did not
perform the skit the way they
had hoped
I think this lesson really
helped stretched the students
ability to create dramatic skits
and they seemed to put more
effort in to the planning when
other groups would be the
ones performing them
