Drama: to dramatise social, cultural or envirnmental issues

Activity 1

To dramatise social, cultural or environmental issues

[lo 4.2]

Drama is exciting. It’s like playing your favourite game. Your educator will guide you through this drama activity in order for you to, not only play, but also learn about the wonderful creative art of drama.


I’m sure you have sports events at your school. Remember on the last sports meeting you had at your school or at your rival school. What did the sports field look like after the meeting? Now, let’s play!

Exercise 1: Exploring

Go to the sports field and imagine the situation in the setting.

Visualise the littering and damage done to the setting.

The sports field is the stage you will be performing on.

Discuss the situation and the setting with your educator and the rest of the class.

Give ideas what the stage will look like for the performance.

Exercise 2: Characterisation

Choose a character you would like to be.

Discuss the different characteristics of the character you have chosen.

Go on the stage in character and explore the scene.

Think about costumes and props for your character.

Exercise 3: Improvisation

Put suggest ideas and solutions for the scene.

Select actions and dialogue for your character in order to solve the problem at hand.

Improvise a short scene in the setting.

Choose aspects from the improvisation and put it together to devise scenes for the ‘play’.

Rehearse the scenes.

Perform the play.

The duration of the play should not exceed 10 minutes.


The learner is able to 1 2 3 4
Create a character; was unable to create a character created a character using only some of the characterisation requirements created a character using adequate characterisation requirements successfully and creatively created a character using all of the characterisation requirements
Improvise a scene after exploring the setting, plot and character . was unable to improvise a scene limitedly improvised a scene by exploring the setting, plot and character adequately improvised a scene after exploring the setting, plot and character successfully improvised a scene creatively after exploring the setting, plot and character


Learning Outcomes(LOs)

LO 4

EXPRESSION AND COMMUNICATION The learner is able to analyse and use multiple forms of communication and expression in Arts and Culture.

We know this when the learner:

MUSIC (4.3 – 4.5)

  • identifies and sings songs from different societies, cultures and contexts, that seem to communicate the same idea
  • uses own compositions of poetry and song to draw attention to current social and environmental issues;
  • communicates a musical intention using the interface of pitch-based harmony (mellophony) instruments.

DRAMA (4.2)

  • dramatises social, cultural or environmental issues through the use of different drama techniques such as tableaux, verbal dynamic sequences or role-plays.

DANCE (4.1)

  • dances in different places (e.g. inside and outside, in the classroom, on stage, on wood, concrete, grass or mud), and describes how dance is affected by space and the physical environments.

hmm well what is the answer
how do they get the third part x = (32)5/4

can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
is it a question of log

Kim Reply
or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

I start with an easy one. carbon nanotubes woven into a long filament like a string
many many of nanotubes
what is the k.e before it land
what is the function of carbon nanotubes?
I'm interested in nanotube
what is nanomaterials​ and their applications of sensors.

what is nano technology

what is system testing?
preparation of nanomaterial
Victor Reply
Yes, Nanotechnology has a very fast field of applications and their is always something new to do with it...
Himanshu Reply
good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
