Capstone Project

 An Introduction to the Elements of Playwriting


An Interactive and Integrated Lesson in Language Arts

    This lesson is designed for a 5th grade Language Arts class.  It is an introduction activity to review and learn the elements of plays. The students first use Inspiration to brainstorm  what they already know about plays.

Then the students are divided into three groups, where they participate in activity that will give them a unique and hands-on approach to the material.  One group will listen to old radio plays, another will act out short one-act plays, while the third group will create a photograph essay using digital images to represent the various elements of  plays.
