Students worked in the lab on their sound, lights, and publicity designs (due today) and began work on their playwriting excerpts.
Students were introduced to the basics of playwriting and the playwriting assignment portion of their online portfolios.
Students took a Dramatics Elements quiz, then performed their playwriting scene in the auditorium.
After discussing the Dramatic Elements of 'The Lottery' students participated in a playwriting activity in groups of three and four. They will be performing their creations tomorrow.
Today, some students chose to have dramatic readings of their scripts and chose class members to read for them.
We met in the lab so students could type the final drafts of their scripts. Scripts were due at the end of the day for 50 points.
Students revised/edited the rough drafts of their scripts. We then played theatre games.
Students typed the rough drafts of their original one-act scripts in Lab 317. Students also added their marking period one reflections on our class wiki page.
All students should bring their printed rough drafts to class on Wednesday for editing/revising.
We finished yesterday's playwriting performances. Then, we reviewed playwriting notes and the writing assignment. To end class, we did some brainstorming.
