Write a Review
Use this writing activity for students to evaluate the performance in a review format.
Ask students to imagine that they are an arts critic for the school newspaper. They are going to write a review of the performance to inform others about what they experienced. They should describe with detail and accuracy:
- What they saw
- What they heard
- What the performance was about (in their opinion) or the story it conveyed
- How the performance made them feel
- What the performance reminded them of
- What their favorite part was and why
- Would they recommend it and why
Remind the students that they must paint a picture of the experience with their words so that others who did not see the performance can imagine it as vividly as possible.
