    I just performed my play for the parents last night (or actually my kids performed it, I directed it). We begin genre studies at the beginning of the year. I make a poster out of chart paper for each genre. It lists the characteristics for the genre and then we add book titles as we read throughout the year. Then the students choose which genre they would like to use for a play. The students then choose a book in the genre. They write their own scripts based on the book. I had 36 students last year and we did 6 little plays (about 10-15 min. for each one). This year I have 19 and we did 4 plays. It is a blast. We did Fable (The Wolf Who Cried Boy), Fairy Tale (Jack and the Beanstalk), Myth (The Golden Apples) and Fantasy (Rumpelstiltskin's Daughter). I hope this helps.
