We were doing some open ended scenes with the 5th grade today. They had to make choices and then act out the scene to see if their choices fit. Two boys did their scene, and it was pretty obvious to me that it was about hiding out from the police after a bank robbery because one of the boys was acting injured and they were looking real suspicious. After the scene, I questioned the class:
MR. BOWERS: Ok, what do you think their scene was about?
BRANDON: The Womens Civil Rights Movement?
THE WHOLE CLASS: WHAT?????
