Students played theatre games and watched, "Who's Line is it, Anyway?"
Today, we reviewed memorization techniques as a class. Then, students filled out GOTE sheets for their monologues and turned them in for 10 points. The last 15 minutes of class, students volunteered to perform two-person scenes from our improv book.
Students learned about the monologue assignment (see handout on main class page). Monologue performances will be next Monday (October 1st). Students selected their monologues today, then the class played the theatre game, "Complaint Department."
Today, students learned how to play a new improv game: Pockets.
We practiced our improv skills today by playing 3-line improv and taking turns with partners performing scenes with a given scenario. Everyone did an amazing job!
Today, students created a slide show in groups. After, we went over the basic rules of improvisation, then practiced some of these techniques with the game "Park Bench."
There was a sub today. Students watched "Who's Line is It, Anyway?" and completed a handout to go along with it.
Students played improv games and took notes on the Dramatic Elements. Students, be advised that any issues or questions about marking period grades can be addressed on Monday since I was not at school Friday. If you have any pressing questions before then, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Students completed the contentless scenes. I handed out the performance expectations for their monologue assignment. To end class, we did some improv scenes using the scenario book.
4th hour finished presentations (5th hour finished yesterday). Both classes filled out peer evaluation forms, learned about the basics of improvisation, and played some improv games.
