Scene Writing: Literacy and Playwriting

Drama is ever-present in our daily lives and eloquently depicted on stage. Middle schoolers practice writing scenes based on different prompts and frameworks, and then perform those creative scenes for their classmates. The activities focus on the theme of family conflict in Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun, as well as the themes and characters studied in Romeo and Juliet.

Lesson Planet was a great help to me during my student teaching. The site allowed me to find the lessons and support materials necessary for me to create lesson plans.
