October 14, 2013: What's Happening in A.P. Literature?

1. Today we'll finish the Henry speeches.
2. We'll divide Act III and go into our acting groups to prepare and rehearse.

Because the court scene is brief and contains only two actors, Courtiers will divide. One group will do a rebel scene, one where we see a man and wife who speak two different languages. (Actors might choose to substitute a contemporary love song, which should be easier than Welsh to obtain.)

  • Rebels: 3.1.1-197
  • First Courtiers: 3:1.198-276
  • Second Courtiers: 3.2
  • Pub Crawlers 3.3
As you prepare with your Acting Groups...

  • Read over the entire script together at least once.
  • Paraphrase your lines to ensure that every person in your group understands them.
  • Decide how you will deliver these lines; consider tone, dramatic pauses, volume, body posture, gestures, etc.
  • Develop and implement at least one symbolic choice.
  • Select costumes that fit your character group, literally or symbolically.
  • Practice a few times.

HW--Independent study essay is due Wednesday.
