A short response after each lesson will ensure the task is a small and manageable one. The minimum requirement is 2 paragraphs ( or equivalent) each week
You can have dot points but they must be clear to follow.
Be honest and focus on yourself and what you can change, not those that are out of your control.
Congratulations on completing your first assessment in Drama.
The focus over the last few weeks has been, what are the basic elements of performance that a performer or designer needs to consider when creating works.
For this post you are going to reflect on what aspect of stage craft is the most important. Yes you have to pick 1. Is it positioning on stage, the stage type, character status, entrances and exits, relationships with other actors, set, props or character? Which one do you think is the most important for a performer to consider and use when they are performing?
Which of the points listed above do you find most challenging?
Which do you feel most comfortable with?
Which did you learn the most about through the last 3 weeks?
In class today we looked stage directions and using a script as a base to make decisions about performance spaces. Use the work done today to answer the following questions:
1. What did you picture when you read the stage directions, explain?
2. Which stage type did you envisage and why?
3. Were there enough stage directions? Justify your answer
4. based on the small introduction to script and comparing to the work we have done devising, which process did you find easier to work with? explain.
Firstly thank you for your patience with this post.
I will mark them off on Thursday.
For this post you need to find a different type of stage in use. State what type of stage you think it is and list the pros and cons for the actor and the audience.
email me the image and I will include it. Like the one below from Jess.
Welcome to your Year 9 Drama Blog. This space will allow you so show your understanding of the work we are doing in class and to reflect on your personal strengths and weaknesses.
I am looking for quality - reflection, not simply a retelling of what happened. Use it as a place to focus on yourself and your work and what you can change, as you can't change others.
Important points: Don't use names of people in the class, describe the group or point
Write for an audience: understand that you are on a public forum and others can read what you write.
So for your very first blog answer the following questions about today's lesson.
1. List 3 of the most important elements you think a good improviser must have.
2. what are the "rules of improvisation"
3.Which of the activities that we did today, did you feel least comfortable with?
4. Which of the activities that were done today were you most comfortable with?
5. Looking back what is one thing you would do differently if you did the class again?
6. After participating in the last 2 lessons what would you say are your strengths and weaknesses in drama?
