look at he simulated blog post on acting. The students can share their fears and encourage each other.
each student would use the form from google docs and express there understanding of the facets of the needs on the describing acting (copied below)
OBJ: Each student will demonstrate knowledge by restating the strands of acting and provide an example or description.
(1) Four basic strands--perception, creative expression/performance, historical and cultural heritage, and critical evaluation--provide broad, unifying structures for organizing knowledge and skills students are expected to acquire. Through perceptual studies, students increase their understanding of self and others and develop clear ideas about the world. Through a variety of theatrical experiences, students communicate in a dramatic form, make artistic choices, solve problems, build positive self-concepts, and relate interpersonally.
(2) Students increase their understanding of heritage and traditions through historical and cultural studies in theatre. Student response and evaluation promote thinking and further discriminating judgment, developing students who are appreciative and evaluative consumers of live theatre, film, television, and other technologies.
(c) Knowledge and skills.
(1) Perception. The student develops concepts about self, human relationships, and the environment, using elements of drama and conventions of theatre. The student is expected to:
(A) improvise, using emotional and sensory recall;
(B) develop and practice theatre preparation and warm-up techniques;
(C) employ stage movement and pantomime consistently to express thoughts, feelings, and actions;
(D) develop and practice effective voice and diction to express thoughts and feelings;
(E) define and give examples of theatrical conventions (time, setting, fourth wall, visual elements); and
(F) analyze and describe the interdependence of all theatrical elements.
(2) Creative expression/performance. The student interprets characters, using the voice and body expressively, and creates dramatizations. The student is expected to:
(A) demonstrate safe use of the voice and body;
(B) analyze a character from a script, describing physical, intellectual, emotional, and social dimensions;
(C) portray believable characters when applying acting concepts, skills, and techniques; and
(D) improvise, write, and refine monologues, scenes, and vignettes to convey meaning to the audience.
