Activity Overview


Theater is a visual medium, and it can be helpful for students to create visualizations of what they're reading. For the students, it's a great way for them to demonstrate what they're seeing as they read and helps them understand the formatting of a play. For teachers, it's a great way to assess how well students are understanding the material.

After or during reading Death of a Salesman, students should identify an important scene, something that's a pivotal character moment or that shows one of the prevalent themes. Using the traditional or 16x9 layout, students should recreate the scene, trimming dialogue as necessary. They can include a "previously on" cell like the example above to help root the scene in context.

For an alternative assignment, students can create a graphic novel of their chosen scene using one of our graphic novel layouts. These can be added as additional templates to the assignment.
