Liars Club Lesson

Liars Club Lesson

How do actors bring truth to every performance they do, even if it’s outside their own experience? In this lesson, students in grades 6-8 will have the chance to practice telling each other true stories that happened in their lives, and then telling each other’s stories to the class as if they were their own.  This lesson challenges students to practice great listening, collaboration, concentration, and imitation skills, preparing them to play more realistic characters and circumstances.

Liars Club Journal Grade 6 

To maximize student achievement, download this drama journal for students to use as reflection or formative assessment. For this poem, we have created a corresponding journal page for your students. A drama journal allows participants to reflect on their learning and artistic growth (metacognition). It also allows you, the teacher, to see how students are using the drama vocabulary, thinking about big ideas, and perceiving their own strengths and weaknesses.
