Students will find alternative solutions through debate.
Upon reading and establishing the logical breakdown of A View From The Bridge (1) students will be set up in character pairs as follows: Catherine versus Rodolpho, Catherine versus Uncle, Uncle versus Rodolpho. Students may take turns playing each role. The rest of the class will act as moderators. Characters will engage in a conversational debate according to their own viewpoint. As the debate plays out, students in the audience may randomly ask questions pertaining to the conversation at hand. The actors must acknowledge the questions by motivating the conversation toward a logical conclusion. The lesson will continue until every student has a chance to participate.
Students will refer back to the script and play out scenes in accordance with motivations extracted from the debate.
