This Seat's Taken: AP Lit, October 31, 2012

Focus: Preparing for the final battles of Henry IV, Act 5

Warm-up: Updates! How did the metacognitive go?

Start rehearsing for Friday's Act 5 performances!

Overview of acting company assignments:

  • Courtiers: 5.1.  I suggest that you cut repetitive material about the rebel cause but spend time discussing why it is repeated.  
  • Rebels: 5.2
  • All Groups: 5.3 and 5.4.  The battle: All groups fight; you will need to assign speaking parts and one or two directors; it is very important that actors with speaking parts rehearse well.
  • Pub Crawlers: 5.5.  Most of the tavern crew stayed at home (they're not so into the battles), so please take a walk on the other side of the tracks and play courtiers.

HW: Finish reading Act 5 with 10 one-liners and a typed close reading of one speech from Act 5 (this is your reading ticket for tomorrow's Socratic seminar).  Consider purchasing Invisible Man ASAP.
