They worked in small groups to decide what dramatic techniques to use and write the final scripts for their Modern Version of a scene from Romeo and Juliet. Some groups worked efficiently and even had time to practice their scene. Can't wait to see these scenes next week!
We read a bit more of our book focusing on a few key discussion points, "Pick your battles..." and "You might lose them all". The kids had some very insightful comments about these ideas in relation to the story and in real life. At the end of the day, they worked in partners to create a "Battle Plan" for Gari to keep her mother from going to fight in the war. We'll share these ideas next week. Can't wait to see what the kids came up with!
