Student Monologues for Classroom Study: Holidays, Celebrations, Days of Remembrance

Student Monologues for Classroom Study: Holidays, Celebrations, Days of Remembrance

edited by Lindsay Price

Monologues for students, by students, and are inspired by a specific theme.

You won’t see the monologues in this resource in any other collection — they are written for students, by students, and are inspired by a specific theme.

We asked students to share their perspective on a holiday or day of remembrance. Some used this opportunity to write about how a specific day connects to their identity; others wrote wonderful comedic pieces to highlight a holiday that doesn’t get a lot of attention. Students wrote about National Coming Out Day, World Autism Awareness Day, Diwali, World Suicide Prevention Day, Groundhog Day, Valentine’s Day, Christmas, Hanukkah, New Years, and more.

The monologue is an excellent theatrical assignment for classroom study. You can read and analyze, you can perform, you can have students direct each other. This resource provides close reading questions, staging suggestions, and character development questions for every monologue. There are also five lesson plans for you to use in conjunction with the monologues.

Read, analyze, discuss, perform, and write — all within one great resource.

Monologues written by high school and middle school students.
