Today we reviewed the life of William Shakespeare and learned his rhyming scheme "iambic pentameter". Students translated the balcony scene of Romeo and Juliet and performed them for the class.
We welcomed each other back from break by playing some favorite warm up excercises and learning some new. We opened with our Energy Ball, Swoosh GaGong, Zip Zap Zop, Ha!, and Actor's Contract. We then learned about Character Objective and split into duo's to present a scene using given character objectives. We ended class with a new improv game "Split Curtain".
Make Up Day/A Knight's Tale
Students were allowed to complete and turn in missing assignments. Those who were caught up enjoyed the film " A Knight's Tale" to complete our unit over Medieval Theatre.
