Cyber Drama: pre-texts

Andrew Cooke's insight:

Please read this Scoop first for the instructions to begin your task.

 

I want you to read the above information about pre-texts and use it to begin formulating ideas for your own pre-text for a process drama that deals with our focus question for the term " How a community deals with a crisis?". There are two examples of pre-texts included on this site that deal with the same focus question. You can view these two examples for ideas if you are having trouble with your own. Once you have read through the above information I want you to write your pre-text, then you can continue onto the second scoop which has the next task for you to complete.

Elements-of-Theatre-and-Process-Drama.pdf

Andrew Cooke's insight:

Now that you have your pre-text written, I want you to begin thinking about how the process drama based on your pre-text may unfold and what elements you may use to develop your process drama (don't go too deeply into the process drama itself as we will be acting out each student's individual process drama in class this Tuesday). For those of you still having trouble, you will have at least begun to formulate ideas about your pre-text, I will be able to help you finish writing your pre-text from your ideas in class on Tuesday.

 

QUESTION 1: List at least five particular circumstances that could unfold in the process drama created from your written pre-text. Make sure to relate these to the exploration of the focus question for this unit (the focus question can be found in the first scoop if you need to find it again).

 

QUESTION 2: Using the elements listened on this site, choose one (say for example 'Tension') and list ways in which you can use it to build up the process drama and challenge the direction in which it is heading. Try to include at least three points in your list that steer it away from something that might feel conventional or easily predictable.
