This Life Drama
uses written memoirs as inspiration for creating a drama that reflects situations in real life (part of the 4th grade objectives). This lesson uses the poem “Alone in the Grange” by Gregory Harrison and “Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge
” by Mem Fox. Students work through an improvisational process where there is no pre-written story or pre-determined outcome. They apply the practice of "no denial of creation" or saying “yes” to what others create as a way to support the drama and honor the imagination of others. Students will present a memoir history through a tableau. This lesson is part of our recommended sequence in the Fourth Grade Curriculum
