Creating Monologues, Dialogues, and Scenes

Creating Monologues, Dialogues, and Scenes

Each student will create a monologue, a dialogue, or a scene based on a real life conflict. The source of the conflict may either be from the student’s life or from conflict that the student has observed. Evaluation of the monologues, dialogues, or scenes will focus on the inclusion of the elements of a good scene and the performance of the scene.

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.
