For the last week or so of school, I will be introducing next year's HL cohort to the Solo Project. If you are not an HL Theatre student for next year, use this end-of-the-year time to check the grade book, turn in late/missing work, and improve courses that you are concerned about.
MONDAY & TUESDAY:
Go to the downloads section and review the Instructions and Rubric for the HL Solo Project.
Review the email information I sent to all HL cohort for next year. Jot down any questions you may have about the project or the summer.
Meet on Zoom at 1:00pm for a question and answer session about the project.
Review the jigsawed theorists to see if you gravitate towards any of these acting theorists. Please email me if you would like to focus on a design theorist so I can send you a prospective list. Use the summer to narrow down your selection and begin your research.
Happy Last Day of School! Congratulations on finishing your junior year!
Welcome to your last week seniors! High school is nearly behind you!
- Prepare for your Final Socratic Seminar by reviewing your impressions of the productions viewed in the past two weeks.
- Participate in Final Socratic Seminar
WEDNESDAY & THURSDAY:
- Catch up on any missing work from all of your classes.
- Congratulations Seniors! Juniors, take the day off in support of your seniors classmates.
In continuing with last week's lessons, we will be spending our class time viewing and discussing contemporary works of theatre and their impact on audiences. This content meets the following standard, which has been identified as our remaining “essential learning requirement” for the semester:
In your journal (#5), compare and contrast the two performances from last week. How are they similar; how are they dissimilar? Both in terms of production elements and ways of performing as well as thematic content. As a theatrical artist yourself, what production inspires you more? What would you have enjoyed being a part of as an audience, performer, or designer? (Full page journal)
Last week you watched a performance that used puppetry as its primary medium; we will continue with that medium today. Watch the following piece of theatre from the same devising company: https://vimeo.com/228109659?fbclid=IwAR1iRbEdQz-li5N-WLQmB5beXhD_X94Hmk11PSfKeZMSWuQy9qdq42uCWbM .
WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY, FRIDAY:
Use these days to catch up on all journal entries and submit your journals to www.turnitin.com by midnight on Friday.
Optional, because it costs money to rent (but highly encouraged if you are able to): Watch the following documentary, Dangerous Acts Starring the Unstable Elements of Belarus.
The Final Socratic Seminar about the contemporary works of theatre that we viewed the past two weeks will take place on Tuesday, 9th at 1:00pm via Zoom. If you cannot attend, please email me.
Even though this is the Final (due to seniors in the course), there will still be class meetings and information (until school closes on June 23rd) for all junior students who will be HL Theatre students next year.
