Activity 2

To adopt and maintain a role

[lo 3.4]

The story in the forest

Stage One

  • use the school hall or the stage
  • imagine a forest in this space
  • place chairs (the trees) in the space
  • if you want a river flowing through the forest, mark on the floor where the river should be
  • walk through the forest to experience and be aware of the space and environment they are going to be working in
  • make sure they visualise the setting, colours, textures, sounds, smells, etc. of the forest

Stage Two

  • leave the ‘forest’;
  • think about a character you would like to be in the forest – you can even be an animal;
  • be creative;
  • have them explore the elements of characterisation :
  • Action : What am I doing?
  • Volition: Why am I doing it? (will-power)
  • Adjustment : How am I doing it?

- explore the external attributes to characterisation :

  • the body (is the character young, old, fat, cripple…?)
  • the voice (shrill, deep, seductive, old, childlike,…?)
  • the face (narrow eyes, nervous twitch, evil, good…?)
  • the attitude (self confident, nervous, insecure, in charge…?)
  • the props (glasses, tiara, walking stick, gun…?)
  • the costume (evening gown, tuxedo, rags, track suit…?)
  • the make up (beard, fantasy, aging…?)
  • return to, and move through the forest as the character you have created

Stage Three

  • divide into groups;
  • maintain the character that you originally created and devise a story using it and the characters of the other learners in the group;
  • create appropriate dialogue;
  • write down the dialogue;
  • plan and rehearse your story;
  • perform your stories before the rest of the class.


  • every action that takes place on stage must serve a purpose
  • make sure your dialogue is easy to say and easy to remember
  • make sure your story has a beginning, middle and an end
  • make sure your story has a climax
  • instead of using a lot of dialogue, try actions instead – you don’t have to say anything to make a point
  • use as much of the space available to you – movement on stage can be very exciting


The learner is able to: 1 2 3 4
Develop a level of self-confidence and the skills to focus and concentrate
Develops a sense of spatial awareness
Adopt and maintain a character during the duration of the play
Develop and use suitable dialogue, as well as suitable gestures and movements
Interpret the role with self-confidence
Create and develop a short text
Be aware of personal creative possibilities
Work as an individual in a group
Perform characteristics and dramatic interaction clearly


LO 3

PARTICIPATION AND COOPERATION The learner is able to display personal and social skills while participating in arts and culture activities as an individual and in a group.

We know this when the learner:


In regard to 3.1 – 3.7 below:

cooperates with other group members during arts activities;

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
in general
