Skits to preview A Raisin in the Sun
Get into groups of 4. Then write a short skit for one of the two following situations. Each actor must have at least two lines, and skits must use appropriate language and tone.

Situation #1: A mailman arrives, bringing a life insurance check for $70,000 to a poor family who has recently suffered the loss of a loved one. Create a skit involving the mailman, a parent, and the parent's son and daughter.

Situation #2: A poor family who has just inherited money moves to a middle-class neighborhood. They meet the new neighbors, who do not accept them and don't think they belong. Create a skit involving a parent, his/her son or daughter, and the new neighbors (the neighbors may both be adults, or be an adult and a child).

Scripts due at end of period for approval and photocopying. Performances tomorrow.
