SETTING MATTERS... where we are affects who we are and how we behave

Watch the scene from this iconic movie (it's old but Ms. Chapuis loves it!) and complete the graphic organizer about setting and character.

Next .... think about how this scene and these characters might interact if they were early cave men, a family of crime bosses or even wacky psychotherapists.

What if instead of a wealthy town in New England they lived somewhere else. Perhaps in a village in El Salvador, southeast DC or right down the block from you here in Arlington. How would the change in setting affect how they speak, what they say and how they move?

Use the script to rewrite and reframe the scene. Performances due Friday.
