The Beneditti's book has 24 chapters and we have to cover a new chapter before each class.

Lesson Plan(s) (general; also, see "left table"):
1. Review (Textbook Reading) -- tests after each part (Method, Episodic and so on.)
2. Monologues, Scenes (homework) -- Acter's Texts are collected after presentation in class (grades), and the journals.
