Analyzing Language, Character, and Theme: World Café Discussion

As part of their study of A Midsummer Night's Dream, class members meet in a drama circle where they discuss and role play scenes from the play. They then engage in an activity called World Cafe, analyzing the characters' actions from the text. They end by participating in a whole group discussion to go over their note catchers.
