Play Adaptation involves numerous higher-order thinking skills. How do we take a text in one form and turn it into a play? You can't just add a narrator and call it a day. You also can't throw your students into the deep end of the pool with "War and Peace" and expect them to swim. In this workshop you will learn practical exercises and a step by step path to prepare your students to take on an adaptation project.
