                                              Drama
Essential Understanding:
As we mature, we learn to juggle new and various roles in our daily life. Thus, the need for
proper social interaction becomes greater. Drama helps to shape this interaction and
promotes a better understanding of self and others.


Standards Addressed:
C.12.1.e       Demonstrate confidence and poise during presentations, interacting effectively
               with the audience, and selecting language and gestures mindful of their effect
C.12.1.i       Speak fluently with varied inflection and effective eye contact, enunciating
               clearly at an appropriate rate and volume
D.12.1.c       Use language appropriate to the background, knowledge, and age of an
               audience
D.12.2.c       Analyze and explain how immediate context and broader social, cultural,
               regional, and professional variables influence the use of language, citing
               characteristics such as level of formality, slang, jargon, and emotional impact
D.12.2.d       Draw inferences about values, attitudes, and points of view by analyzing a
               writer's or speaker's use of English


Required Abilities:
Students must show familiarity with basic speaking skills and dramatic literary elements.


Assignment:
Students will have the choice of re-enacting a scene from Romeo and Juliet or performing an
original scene that develops a given theme.
Assignment Options:
1. Choose a scene from Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. You may perform the scene as is
   or do a modern interpretation of it. Either way, you are to write an MLA format script
   with an introduction. Be sure to have a Works Cited page that gives proper credit to your
   source. As a group, memorize and perform the script and introduction. The performance
   needs to be less than ten minutes. If your character performs less than 33% of the lead’s
   lines, you are considered an “extra” and will not receive any credit for your performance.


   This can be videotaped for presentation, but the group is still responsible for sound and
   picture quality. An exact script of the scene must be turned in before presentation.


2. Students will create and perform an original, school-appropriate drama scene that lasts no
   more than 10 minutes based on a given theme. Again, write an MLA format script.
   Because this is a mere scene, an introduction will be needed to familiarize the audience
   with the setting and theme. The scene will need to be performed by at least 2 different
   people. Please be aware that multiple roles can detract from the development of the
   character and theme in the given amount of time. However, if your character performs
   less than 33% of the lead’s lines, you are considered an “extra” and will not receive any
   credit for your performance.


   This can be videotaped for presentation, but the group is still responsible for sound and
   picture quality. An exact script of the scene must be turned in before presentation.
