This week in Drama:
All 3 grade levels will have their second Vocabulary Quiz this Friday, December 7th.
6th graders are finishing their costume creations. Then, they’ll be introduced to puppetry and begin working on different types of puppet shows. They’ll begin with shadow puppetry before moving into hand puppets.
7th graders are developing and rehearsing their stories that they’ll perform. This week will be spent on creating cue cards and rehearsing.
8th graders are performing their musical productions in the classroom this week! I am super excited to see what they’ve created! They’ll also take notes on another team’s production so they’ll be able to write a 5 paragraph essay style critique on a performance after all have been done. The latter part of the week will be spent drafting that critique so we can write them in the computer lab next week.
This week in Broadcasting:
Students are developing new video projects. They will be filming this week and should start editing by the end of the week.
They will also be working on more script and storyboard practice a little each day as a warm up activity. These practice sheets will be graded on Friday, December 7th.
In addition to that, the ongoing “Wildcat Way Critique” assignment is due on Friday, December 7th. This is where students were asked to critique 5 of our morning broadcasts over the course of the past month or so. They have 10 more episodes (including today’s) available to critique if they haven’t started this yet.
