Reflection: Joy Act 1: Scene 1: Elements of Drama Vs. Elements of Prose - Section 1: Activating


My kids surprised me today. They truly did not want me to turn off the clip of the play. I asked how many have seen something like this on stage and only 4 hands went up. Next year, I need to make sure I schedule a field trip for a performance at the start of this unit. This year everything got pushed back because of all the snow days and I had no time to get this unit in. I want to plan accordingly to make sure my students have a point of reference that is bigger than the school show.
