Quiet on the Set!
In pairs learners perform a silent skit portraying relationships between two known characters from a popular book or a play for their classmates. Next, the class will read and discuss a NYTimes article about a film school in the Bronx that influences urban teens positively through acting. Following, a short film clip will be viewed provoking a class discussion on character development. To sum up the lesson plan each pupil will create a wordless storyboard depicting the film.
