T he right to move

  • Some children are so geared up to make others aware of their human rights that they’re getting involved in all kinds of cool projects

T he right to speak

  • Why should your rights be protected?
  • What would you do if your rights were violated?

Let your mind go on the information you have just read and enjoy being creative with the following activity.

Be creative in the following exercise.

1. Selecting a scenario

  • Divide into groups of six to eight.
  • Choose a theme for your improvisational exercise from South Africa’s Constitution.
  • Discuss the themes you want to work with.
  • Decide upon characters you want to portray in your improvisation.
  • Keep the following in mind when planning your improvisation:
  • Is the scene outside or inside?
  • Where and what are the objects and/or furniture?
  • What is the immediate off-stage world?
  • Are there associations of freedom or restraint, fulfilment or deprivation?
  • What has just happened to the character?
  • Where has he just been?
  • How will the other characters potentially affect the achievement of his goal?
  • Does the character know anything about the other characters?
  • Is there conflict between the characters?
  • Who is the character?
  • What is his objective?
  • Where is the action taking place?
  • What is the moral, theme or message of the improvisation?

2. Improvisation

Definition:

Chambers’ Twentieth Century Dictionary in its revised edition offers the following definitions of improvisation: ‘‘to compose and recite, or perform, without preparation’; ‘to bring about on a sudden’; ‘to make or contrive offhand or in an emergency’; and for the word ‘offhand’ there is this: ‘without study: impromptu free and easy; ungraciously curt or summary’

The aim of improvisation is to exercise specific abilities and skills – rehearsal to improve performance and ease of operation.

  • Improvise your scene for the rest of the class.
  • Have the ‘audience’ comment constructively on the performances.
  • Participate in a brief class discussion based on the following:
  • Could the ‘child rights’ message be clearly identified?
  • Were the characters appropriately developed?
  • Was the proposed feeling and emotion properly and clearly conveyed?
  • What was the climax or highlight of the improvisational piece?

Assessment

Learning Outcomes(LOs)
LO 1
CREATING, INTERPRETING AND PRESENTING The learner will be able to create, interpret and present work in each of the art forms.
Assessment Standards(ASs)
We know this when the learner:
DANCE
1.1 in preparing the body, applies safe dance practice and healthy use of the body, for example:
  • warming up and cooling down;
  • good postural and joint alignment;
  • released/soft use of joints;
  • safe landing from elevation (jumping);
  • stretching with safety;
1.2 improvises to explore choreographic design concepts:
  • space – direction, levels, symmetry, asymmetry;
  • time – duration, pace, pulse, phrasing;
  • force – yielding to and resisting gravity, active and passive movement;
1.3 creates and presents dance sequences that focus on and challenge, amongst others, human rights issues such as social and cultural attitudes towards dance, and attitudes towards gender and disability in dance;
DRAMA
1.4 follows a teacher-directed warm-up routine;
1.5 uses exploration of human rights issues in South Africa as a basis for group improvisations that:
  • show understanding of basic dramatic structure (who, what, where, when);
  • show characters drawn from observation, imitation and imagination;
  • incorporate some dramatic elements such as grouping, shape and climax to communicate meaning and feeling.

what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct
