9/14 Drama Agenda

history of theatre videos

In order to tie in all of our history, with some chronology and purpose, I have put together a series of videos that will enable us to better understand the history of theatre and why we should care.

Sneeze
What kind of irony do you see, and why?  Answer in complete sentences.

  1. In Macbeth by William Shakespeare, Macbeth appears to be loyal to Duncan, but he is actually plotting his murder. Duncan doesn’t know Macbeth’s plans, but the audience knows what is going to happen.
  2. The Story of an Hour by Kate Chopin tells the tale of a wife who learned her husband was dead. She felt a sense of freedom, thinking about her new life out from under his thumb. Suddenly, the husband returns (he never was dead) and she dies of shock.
  3. A snobbish woman – who perceives moonstone to be a poor man’s gemstone – is given a pair of moonstone earrings by her fiancé. When she opens the box, she says, “Thank you, honey. I just love moonstones. They’re so – simple.”

Read the rest of “The Most Dangerous Game”

Discuss ending of story.

Compare/revise notes using Cornell Strategies

Irony worksheet in pairs due at the end of class.

Sneeze:

People often say, “You have to love your family, but you don’t have to like them.”  Do you agree with this statement?  Why?

Discussion and writing on “What is a topic sentence?”  Topic sentences are found at the beginning of a paragraph and set up the main idea of your passage.  Thing of a topic sentence like a road map.  Tell me where you are going, and then use examples and transition words after that to tell me the exact directions.

Use the sentence frame, for summaries: In SCENE __ in “Antigone” by Sophocles….

Remember: use your checklist!  No first person! No fragments or run-ons! No abbreviations.  Use pen!  You got this!!

Homework: Read the remainder of “Antigone” and re-write your summaries for SCENE 2 and SCENE 3, for turn-in!
