For a full version of this activity, please see my Chapter 4. I ask my students to read three different passages aloud: When the boy falls ill, the teacher tells him that he will contaminate un journey unless he agrees to be thrown to his death.
Yes 1 was not presented at the Berlin festival but first performed by students and broadcast on radio on 23 June — followed by between two and three hundred other ndinsager performances before Hitler took power neinsagwr Germany. The child, who decided to join the journey in order to get medicine for his ill mother, becomes sick during the climb and the TEACHER tells him:. Jasaer the same Custom prescribes that the one with the sickness be asked: And moreover the Custom says that the sick man must reply: Do you want us to turn back home for your sake?
No, you should not turn back. After the performance, I put a prompt on the board and ask my students to follow the directions precisely: Take three minutes to write a paragraph that presents an original claim about whether or not students would benefit from performing this opera.
Why or why not? I tell the students I will collect their paragraphs at the end of the writing exercise. They performed the revision resulting from these discussions, Yes 2, on 18 May With this casting choice, I hope to demonstrate that authority and submission are distributed ddr teachers and students as part of their assigned or reassigned roles.
Because you are ill and can go no further, we must leave you here.

But it is right that the one with the sickness be asked: So are you consenting that you should be left behind? I will think it over. He pauses for thought. Yes, I am consenting. He has answered as necessity demanded.
He has said yes. The three students remain standing. Go on now, no hesitation On towards our destination. Let me say something: I beg you not to leave me lying jasaher, but to throw me down into the valley, for I am frightened to die alone.

We cannot do that. I demand that you should. You resolved to go on neinsaer leave him there Deciding his fate is easy Enacting it is hard. Are you ready to throw him down into the valley? Following the performance, I post a prompt for the second writing exercise: Please take 3 minutes to write. I tell the students that I will once again ask them to hand in their work.
Or do you consent that you should be hurled into the valley as the Custom prescribes? No, I do not consent. He has not replied in accordance with the Custom.
He has said no. Why have you not replied in accordance with the Custom? Whoever says A must also say B.

When you were asked at the start if you would consent to whatever might happen on the journey, you replied yes. My answer was wrong, but your question was more so… as for the ancient Custom I see no sense in it.
What I need far more is a new Great Custom, which we should bring at once, the Custom of thinking things out anew in every situation. Immediately after the third reading, I ask for volunteers to respond to three questions:. What claims did you make about whether or not students would derive any benefit from performing the opera? Did your argument change after each of the three pieces?
Did the form of your response change with each prompt? The majority of my students, especially those who volunteer to talk, produce three conventional paragraphs claiming that, yes, a group would benefit from performing the Brecht scenes.
After several members of my class share their thoughts, a rustle of activity became noticeable as students began passing their third piece of writing forward, expecting Evaluation. Do you have something to pass in? At which point, I finally acknowledge that my students were absolutely justified in their frustration with this belabored exercise, which takes fifteen minutes of class time or even more.
I ask my student to neinsqger again jasagsr the instructions I post after the first two readings:.

I remind them that I spoke the third prompt: Please take 3 minutes. The second simply asks students to write, so they can draft a dramatic scene, an account of their breakfast, or a legitimate complaint about the activity for three minutes. Of course, the pressure of Evaluation encourages them to apply the explicit instructions from the first prompt to Yes 2 and write a paragraph arguing for its pedagogical value.
I rename the assignment an Unfree-Writing Exercise. The child, who decided to join the journey in order to get medicine for his ill mother, becomes sick during the climb and the TEACHER tells him: Immediately after the third reading, I ask for volunteers to respond to three questions: I ask my student to look again at the instructions I post after the first two readings:
