Staging Short Stories
How about making a staged version of a short story? The teacher will divide you into groups and give you a short story to work with. Your job is to rewrite the story into a script making it possible to act it out. You may have to adjust the script to the number of people in your group.
You should learn your lines by heart and rehearse the dialogue with your group. Some props may add an extra flair to your performance.
The story could also be recorded as a radio play, using sounds and background music to set the atmosphere.
