Greek Theatre Introduction
Theatre Term Performance
The class presented their performances of their given theatre terms. During the perfomance, audience members wrote down the theatre terms they heard and circled terms they did not know. We discussed the circled terms after each performance to grow better understanding and put them into context.
After the last performance, we played "Find your Partner". Students were given index cards with either a word or a definition and they had to seek out their partner(s) that matched their card.
The terms and definitions are attached below.

The groups will have 10 minutes next class to rehearse and polish and will present their scene to their classmates (castmates).
