Planning Considerations
Suggested Time:

Introduction reading and brainstorming 1 to 2 class periods

Activity 1  About two weeks of class time.  Individual activities have been broken down for clarification in the lesson.

Activity 2  A little over one week for pre-research activities and research, one week for planning and work in the computer lab, and a few days for presetation of collaborative projects.

Activity 3  One week for a small production.  For a large-scale play production, the rule of thumb is one hour of practice for each minute of the play.

Group Size:

Small groups for research, creation of web sites or PowerPoint presentations

Large groups for acting out African folk tales

Whole class for pre-researching activities
