Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Features of Drama - Section 2: Lesson


Watching the video of the two performances, I think I would have given the students more time to transform this poem into a play. I spent a lot of time making sure my students comprehended the poem, then kind of pushed them into transforming it. I liked how the two groups had very different interpretations, and I think drawing those differences out would have beneficial. Even if it meant making this a two-day lesson, I think that slowing down and giving students both the creative freedom and the time to transform this poem would have been a nice opportunity.
