Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Act 3: Scene 2: Comparing Similar Themes In Drama - Section 3: Small Groups


The kids had great discussions today about the themes listed on the front sheet of each play and the actual theme they felt was similar. They said that when they read "kindness" they weren't expecting the plays to turn out as they did.

 I did end up working with my small group because they have a really hard time staying on task for sustained periods of time. They really just needed me to check in with them as the read and took notes. Once they finished reading, the students in my small group were able to tell me that the two plays both had characters that loved someone no matter what.
