- Assign students' roles and hand out scripts (I usually have 2 scrips for all of my students. The stories always have multiple characters, acts, and scenes to be divided).
- Give students at least 3-4 weeks to practice their lines (I even allow some class practice time on Fridays).
- Students present plays in classroom, or on stage using microphones. (Most students remember lines. Those that don'e are allowed to read scripts, but with expression and action. Many groups of students like to add in electronic sound effects and costumes to spice up their performance).
- Sit back, watch...maybe record...the magic that takes place!

The students are always so awesome from the set designers to the extras needed in scenes. You should take a chance on incorporating live plays in your classroom! The actors/actresses and audience will truly enjoy!
