Activity 2

Speaking

FEED YOUR MIND AND SHARE YOUR SNACK WITH YOUR FRIENDS

What you will need

  • Your favourite book or story or character from a story
  • A two-minute presentation - no costumes at this stage (you will be timed, so practise this at home!)

What you will do

  • Bravely present your two minute “snack” to your group
  • Be creative and original – WOW your audience!
  • Sell your product!

What the group will do

  • Look and listen
  • Adjudicate - make a grid, like the example below, for each presenter.

1 = boring 2 = so-so 3 = good 4 = Oscar performance!

NAME:
  • Creativity and originality
1 2 3 4
  • WOW
1 2 3 4
  • Audibility
1 2 3 4
  • Audience contact
1 2 3 4

After every actor has had a chance to perform, vote for the Oscar Award Winner from your group. Cast your votes NOW. These actors then perform for the whole class to round off the “show”.

NEXT UP - You’ll have to do some homework.

Now don’t panic. All actors get to go home and study their script for the next day. Your teacher will supply the script (an Aesop’s Fable) and all you have to do is read it thoroughly. Be sure you know the storyline and characters. Imagine how you would stage the story. Practise some moves.For tomorrow you will have to discuss the scene with your group and pool your ideas. Yes, you are going to make the Fable come alive!

Tips

  • Make use of a storyteller (narrator).
  • Give every group member a part.
  • There is a two-minute time limit.
  • Energy and enthusiasm are vitally important.

Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
