DAY 1:

7.) (Due to extra class time):  Added 2 slides to your "Getting to Know You" presentation:

  • 1st added slide:  What do you hope to "get out" of Acting class?

  • 2nd added slide:  After reading all of last semester's students' "take-aways" from this course (which are posted on the wall in Ms. Price's classroom), list the ONE that you found the most meaningful/interesting...something that you would ALSO like to "get out" of the course.

DAY 2:

1.)  Learned about - a place to find what we do in class daily (Haiku will link you to my website if you forget).  This will also be the place that I share lessons and learning tasks if/when we go virtual.

2.)  Reviewed class goals for the first few weeks.

  • To have fun

  • To get out of your comfort zone

  • To learn to think like an artist

3.)  Discussed left vs. right brain and the mental tasks that are performed well by each.

4.)  Explored different ways  to awaken your ability to "think creatively" by drawing abstractly to music, observing style traits in visual art, and finding artistic elements on stage.  (Class activities were led by Ms. Price.)

5.)  Learned about and took notes on the ways that "theatre is art in motion" by watching the video at the top of this page.  (Note:  the teaching video is also on youtube:  "KP's Theatre Class - Composition").
