This Seat's Taken: AP Lit, October 24, 2012

Focus: Analyzing Act 3 through performance

1. Warm-up: 10 minute rehearsal with your group

2. Act 3 performances by the Rebels, the Court, and the Pub-Crawlers

Focus questions for the performances:

  • What do we learn about characters through their dialogues in each scene? How do they treat each other?  Which characters are changing and how?  Why must they change?
  • Which relationships are changing and how?  Why must they change?
  • What are we learning about the political background of the play in each scene?
  • What is the symbolic choice each acting company made, and how is it significant both to this scene and to the play as a whole?
HW: Meet in the library computer lab tomorrow; bring your poetic mind.  Bring your Act 4 word trace to class on Friday for a Socratic seminar.
