Reflection: Classroom Setup An Insulting Conversation: "The Taming of the Shrew" 2.1 - Section 3: Scene Introduction and Grouping of 2.1

 

I made the divisions based on logical entrances and exits in the scene. Also, teachers w/ large classes can make additional splits in the scene and have more than one group perform a scene.

Moreover, having students read through their lines prior to the presentation is important because they need familiarity w/ their lines. They also need to begin group work w/ blocking. Finally, if they have read through the lines, they have a better idea how to assign characters once they meet in the group.

Finally, as the students read silently, I had time to walk around the room and put their names on my record that shows each groups' members.
