1.  Scripts of Comedy/Tragedy for Middle School Students

Posted Jul 08, 2014 7:13 PM
I am looking for script suggestions to read in class with my 6th grade drama students. I would like one script to clearly demonstrate comedy, and one script to clearly demonstrate tragedy. Hopefully these may be classics which would also tie in to ELA standards. I am currently considering Diary of Anne Frank, and The Outsiders. Any other suggestions? ------------------------------------------- Christa Danner Shawnee KS -------------------------------------------

Look at The Orphan Trains.  Historical based drama not overly done and a real look at important American History.
