This week in Drama:
All three grade levels come into class daily and have the first 10 minutes to work on their quarter-long Vocabulary project. Please encourage your student to stay on top of these terms as the final project is worth a Performance Grade at the end of the quarter.
6th graders are being introduced to Puppetry this week. They will be assigned to a team and will create puppets for a shadow puppetry performance.
7th graders are moving into the Storytelling unit….this is so much fun and students tell the most entertaining stories! They will begin selecting their story and developing it throughout this week.
8th graders have created amazing musicals…this week is dedicated to rehearsing those so that they may perform them in class next week.
This week in Broadcasting:
We begin the week finishing the Journalists in History presentations. After that, students will explore different types of news stories, as well as the importance of location scouting. By the end of the week they will be introduced to new video projects and will be planning those with their teams.
NOTE: All Broadcasting students have been assigned a “B-roll” assignment. They must collect video footage from an event here at Durham and edit the footage into a 30 second piece to air on our morning news. They will also need to write a script for our anchors to read to go along with the B-roll. This video is not due until December 8th, but students should not wait until then to turn it in. They are welcome to collect footage, edit, and turn it in any time between now and then. Because of the amount of time given for this assignment, no extensions will be given and failure to turn in a B-roll piece by Friday, December 8th will result in a grade of zero for this video project. Thank you for understanding.
