2/5-2/8 Drama Agendas


Open to your notes from last Friday.  Review your notes, the parts of the three act play and Freytag’s pyramid.  Be ready to label various parts of the climb.  I will call on you at random.

Separate this one act play into what COULD be three acts, and label the parts of Freytag’s pyramid as they would appear in the film.  I’ll help you do the first one.

Now, do it on your own.
