Create, Extend, and Add On a Scene

Create, Extend, and Add On a Scene

Students will suggest and implement alternative characters, settings, or events after viewing or participating in a performance. Groups of four students (or, if needed, smaller or larger groups) will be assigned characters in an improvised scene (or, as an option, the teacher can suggest a scenario or opening line) and then rotate so each actor plays two roles.

After the performances, the students will reflect in writing on their experience. The written work and recorded scenes will be evaluated according to the Teacher Scoring Rubrics.

This item has not yet been field-tested.


These are analytic rubrics. The column on the left shows the dimension that is being measured in the student’s performance. The levels across the top row indicate the performance level in the dimensions. Occasionally all dimensions and performance levels are exemplified by multiple students in a single recording.
