Ethnic Drama: Video-Texts and Study Guides.
Valletta, Clement, Ed.; And Others
The document contains scripts, study guides, and discussion questions for two ethnic dramas suitable for ethnic studies at the secondary school level. The first, "A Glass Rose," an adaptation of the novel by Richard Bankowsky, depicts the hopes, dreams, and problems of a Polish immigrant family who reside in an ethnic neighborhood in an industrial city. The second drama, "First Person Dreams," is a collage of excerpts from stories, poems, plays, letters, and diaries. The excerpts express views of self, family, and American life, each from a different ethnic point of view. The document also contains a synopsis, study questions, and a rehearsal log for the play, "Philadelphia, Here I Come!" by Brian Friel, which concerns the actions and thoughts of a young man on the night before he leaves Ireland for America. Inquiries about video tapes of still photographs to accompany readings of the two dramas may be directed to Clement L. Valletta, Ethnic Heritage Studies Program, King's College, Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, 18711. (Author/KC)
