Lastly, your English 20 In Class Final Essay is to be written TOMORROW during Period 2!
as a class watch the following motivational set for the upcoming play that we must read in English.
Discuss this short video clip.
You will be beginning a play with students today called Bordertown Café by Kelly Rebar. This MUST be read out loud together!
There are limited characters. Sign up to read and switch when people need a break.
(Boys stick to the male characters and girls stick to the female ones.)
When reading a play it is important to read like you are in conversation.
Adjust to new students reading as necessary. You all need to take your turn trying to read in this manner.
Please get through as much of this play as you can before the end of the day.

Or if you want a challenge on your own;
Find an image (PORTRAIT) of someone older; wrinkled, sun spots, looser skin…
