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.

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.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
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.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
What is lattice structure?
s. Reply
of graphene you mean?
or in general
