March 17-27 Optional Activities:
1. I suggest that you spend some time over the next two weeks working on your one-act play. While this isn't a formal assignment yet, keep in mind that it will be.
2. Search for and watch one-act play performances online. There are many! I recommend anything by David Ives, who wrote Sure Thing. Check out various adaptations of his play short Words, Words, Words.
2. Submit an additional, original work to the AuthorSHIP contest. Extend your audience beyond the confines of the classroom--and possibly receive commendation for your work. See the link above.
