Scene Memorization Assignment

Work Time

Your teacher will explain your scene memorization assignment. In a few minutes, you will get to see examples of different actors bringing Shakespeare’s words to life.

  • You are not expected to put on a polished dramatic presentation as they do, but you are expected to go beyond simply speaking the lines without inflection or meaning. Each student will present at least 15 lines.
  • You’ll be able to choose your scene and whether you want to present alone or with a partner. Since the presentations won’t happen until you’ve finished reading the play, the most important thing to do now is to keep your eye out for a passage that you like.
