The Scenebook of Values and Virtues
Acting with Character

By Patrick Rainville Dorn


Cover of
This entertaining collection of 24 character-driven scenes will guide teens to make positive choices in their lives while developing both their social-emotional learning and their acting skills.

Each selection presents a realistic scenario that explores multiple character-building values, such as acceptance, compassion, fairness, forgiveness, generosity, gratitude, honesty, loyalty, perseverance, and self-discipline.  Each scene is then followed by student-tested discussion questions that can spark conversation about values, personal responsibility, and relationships.

Delve into a diverse assortment of thoughtful topics presented in an engaging, lighthearted fashion without any preachniness.  Scenes range from 5 to 10 minutes in length with cast sizes of 2 to 7.  Use this book in any group setting to encourage meaningful, non-religious, values-based dialogue.

There’s no other scenebook like this to help your students develop their own moral compass.

(200 pages, 5½ x 8½, paperback)
