Whose Line is it Anyway? Students are to compose a skit utilizing a dialogue among chosen Civil War figures. Information about key Civil War figures can be found at the link below: http://www.civilwar.org/education/history/biographies/ As part of your skit, you are not to reveal which figure you are playing— your classmates have to guess based on the nature of the dialogue. Not all Civil War figures have to be utilized, just one Civil War figure per group member. Dialogue can be humorous or not. Presentations should be approximately 5-7 minutes in length. Presentation will count as a test grade. Presentations will take place on Thursday, March 5th. For extra credit, groups can dress in costume and/or videotape their skits. Grade will come in two parts, each worth 50 points: o Presentation: Clarity/Accuracy of History: 25 Points Preparedness/Organization: 15 Points Participation: 10 Points o Paper Clarity/Accuracy of History: 25 Points Conventions (Spelling, Grammar, etc.): 15 points Organization: 10 Points o Paper is due at the time of the presentation and will be a copy of the dialogue you will present. o If your group can guess every character in another group’s presentation, your group will receive five points extra credit per group.
