My class chose Bradley Hayward's Apostrophe's even though I had a feeling it would not go over with an eighth grade audience. I was wrong. The students liked the fact that all parts could be played by either sex. They used this for 35% of their grade and nearly all students earned an A or B. Because some of the parts were short, even my special education students were able to shine.
