Reflection: Trust and Respect Reading Drama: Small Group Reading of "A Raisin in the Sun" Act 1, Sc. 2 - Section 2: Small-Group Reading: Understanding Act II, Scene 2

 

As students worked in their "family" groups (see Lesson: Family Conflict: Understanding Theme in "A Raisin in the Sun),the groups were self-selected, allowing students to work with peers they know and trust. This lead to students taking ownership of each character, as they took ownership of each role in the pre-reading theme activity.

Though this reading in class, students developed a deeper understanding of stage directions, and how they shape the action of the play.
