Lesson Plan

Monologue Challenge:

Students will be challenged to memorize and perform two contrasting monologues to demonstrate their ability to create contrasting characters and develop advanced vocal expression.  Contrast can be created through genre, use of dialect or accent, and/or subject matter.   Generally, the wider the contrast, the more successful students will be with this performance.
