Twelfth Night 3.4
What's On for Today and Why
Promptbooks are copies of scripts that contain notes about performance-blocking, delivery of lines, setting, costumes and so on. In creating them, students have the opportunity to envision the scene, make choices about line delivery, suit movement to words and experiment with different but equally important ways to stage a scene. Essentially the students are interacting with the language to bring the scene to life.
In this lesson, students will conduct a close reading exercise of Twelfth Night 3.4 and create promptbooks pages for two sections of this scene.
This lesson will take 3 x 90 minute class periods.
