Wednesday, June 4

Eng H2: Research day with these reminders:

Avoid the temptation to copy and paste onto a word document for two reasons:

  • Leads too easily to plagiarism, which will result in a zero on this project.
  • Hinders you taking ownership or processing the information as you read, and will keep you from being able to form an opinion.

Think! Respond!

  1. Write down the nuggets of information that make you start forming an opinion. They will be your LOGOS in the final piece. USE QUOTES OR WRITE PARAPHRASE
  2. Write opinions and ideas in L column as you encounter process the material. RECORD IN L COLUMN
  3. Ask more questions of what you read. You may find a better question of inquiry.

Eng 12: Rehearsal day. Tomorrow, you perform for another group, off book, for direction.

Tuesday, June 3

Eng H2: We discussed the rhetorical devices of ethos, logos and pathos, then you continued selecting your topic and beginning your research.

Eng 12: I explained the ideas of…

Blocking/Movement: Where is scene set? When and how will you move based on what you say and what you want?

BUSINESS/GESTURES: What you do with your hands. Natural, match content.

CHARACTER/RELATIONSHIP: Who are you with and what do you want from them?

and you worked with your partner to add movement that adds meaning and entertainment value to your scene.

Thursday, May 29

Eng H2: Today was SONNET day! We studied the form and studied two different sonnets. Tonight, all you need to do is AoW 25 if you haven’t yet. Last two poems in class tomorrow.

Eng 12: Today and tomorrow are memorization days: you have the first part of the period to work on memorizing on your own, the last part to work with you partner to check your progress. Have the whole scene memorized for Monday. AoW 25 due tonight.

Memorize techniques:

  1. Cover and repeat. Check. Fix. Repeat. Move on. Cover and repeat. Check. Always repeat from beginning, adding new lines.
  2. Have someone “run lines” with you: they hold script and prompt you with lines between yours and when you miss a line.
  3. Record your lines on ipod/phone and listen EVERY FREE MOMENT. SAY THEM WITH THE RECORDING. Then record just your cue lines.
  4. Run scene with blocking as many times as possible every day in class.
  5. To check if in long term, do something like playing catch or video gaming, doing make-up or dishes, etc. while you say the lines.

Eng 12: You spent the first part of the class studying your script for context and intent, then you rehearsed with your partner.

AoW 25 due by tomorrow night.

Again, if you have any questions for her: [email protected]
