Students will demonstrate their knowledge of the process of creating a character by performing a 2-3 minute scene with a partner for the class.
Have the students leave their bags and phones in the classroom. Go to the auditorium. There will be a table with audition forms on it. The students will fill them out. When finished with their forms, the students will give them to the teachers overseeing their auditions.
Hand out rubrics to each student so that they may review their peers as they watch them. This will allow each student to have notes from both their peers and professors.
The students will observe all the auditions. The teachers will choose what order the students audition by randomly picking an audition form.
Begin the scene performances.
Step Four- Analysis
Students and teachers will fill rubric with notes and thoughts as students perform.
Step Five- Discussion
What were some characteristics of the best scenes? What were you pleased with in your scene performance? What will you do differently next time? How and what would you do to continue to develop your character?
Gather rubrics/ notes from peer-students.
Step Seven-Unit Discussion
What did you learn from this unit? When will this knowledge be used? Is it applicable to real life? If so, how? How can an actor apply, in real life, the empathy and knowledge gained from portraying and studying characters? What tools or techniques that you learned while acting can be applied to everyday life and other classes?
Students will showcase the skills learned over the past unit on creating character in a scene performance—have to be present.
