It's like you read my mind this week! I was just looking for a way to integrate mythology into readers' theater and I absolutely love your ideas! One question though- you mentioned that students get 100 points for the weeklong assignment... how do you grade them? Do you have a rubric or an outline of expectations?
Thank you for a great blog!
Great question! I am always switching it up, but currently I am using a point system based on the following:
20 Points ... Written summary of play
20 Points ... Written lesson learned from play (with specific examples from the text)
10 Points ... Focus, Respect, Responsibility during rehearsal
10 Points ... Given by the director of the play (this allows the directors a little bit of leverage and authority)
15 points ... Performance and preparedness for the play
15 points... Pronunciation and fluency during the play
10 Points ... Good audience member while watching other plays
Thanks for asking!
