Reflection: Student Ownership The Soliloquy Solution - Section 2: Lesson


I love that this lesson and our plan for the next few days is so connected to my students.  I had actually planned this a little differently. I was going to have students work primarily with stage directions for improving The Book Thief script -then go to Romeo and Juliet to study the soliloquy. However, several groups came up with the idea of adding a soliloquy to improve The Book Thief script yesterday, so I was inspired and changed my plan.

On top of the coolness of this, this allows the students to have ownership of what they are doing -automatic buy-in!
