A Christmas Carol

 If the 3 Spirits (your past, present, and future) came to visit you, what would they show you? Where would they take you? 

Directions: We just read Charles Dicken's "A Christmas Carol" in class.  Now you will be using this story's structure to create your own original drama to perform on December 16th in class. Create a puppet show presentation to present to an audience keeping in mind the prompt above (see rubric attachment below).


1.  First, decide on a Theme/Lesson you want your audience/reader to understand: _____________________________

2.  Second, create a plot line for your story (exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, resolution) to your story

3.  Next, create a script to show your choice of scenes, stage directions, and important dialogue (example was given in class): You must include a Cast of Characters, a Prologue, Bolded: character names for dialogue, stage directions in parenthesis and italicized, divisions in scenes by change in setting (time and/or location).

4.  Finally, create puppets, collect necessary props, or staging necessities, and rehearse for your presentation (see examples in photo above-these are "Meeting" the standards).  Presentations will take place on December 16th and 17th (if necessary)!
