Excerpt from: Galileo Galilei (1638 /1914). Diaglogue concerning two new sciences. H. Crew & A. de Salvio (trans.), New York: Macmillan.

The students got to learn about Galileo through a role playing theatre activity. Students read an excerpt from “Galileo Galilei,” and took turns reciting the three parts of SALVIATI, SAGREDO, AND SIMPLICIO in order to play around with Galileo's ideas, and his theories came to be. Here is the link to the document the students read from: 2009fph111galileoexcerptevz.doc
