Objective: The students will read and analyze their first play.
Discussion: It is time to address "the elephant in the room." What is our plan if there is a "fire drill" or some situation on campus?
a) If the alarm sounds. Don't automatically start moving toward the door.
b) I will lock the door. I will go out to see if everything is OK. If everything looks OK, then we will go out. BUT, we don't need to rush to be the first to the stairs, quad, or the field. Heck, we can be last.
c) If there is a situation, know what your options are: hide or fight. Look for something that will help you if you need to protect yourself: Bats, Hot water, Fire Extinguisher, etc.
1. Get Chapter 2 Outline Checked for Points.
2. Chapter 2 Discussion and PP
3. Read and analyze The Sandbox. Complete all questions. You may want to watch the play on Youtube. I could not find a suitable production to show to the whole class, but if you want to watch it, it may help you understand the overall tone and meaning of the play for your analysis.
