Who is the biggest drama queen/king?
This English project is going to be about drama. Drama is an excellent way of practicing your English skills because you get to pretend you are in real situations where you have to speak English. In this project you are also going to write your own scripts which will help you practice your writing as well. You are going to be assigned a group and you will be three or four people in each group. Together you are going to write a script that will allow all members of the group to take part and have lines. Before you start writing your script you will go through a few drama exercises to make you feel more comfortable with acting and improvising. Hopefully this will both prepare and inspire you to enter this project with confidence. You will also, before taking on the task of writing the script, be acquired to write a story together, and it is this story that is going to be the foundation for your script. The success of every play is to plan your scenes ahead so therefore you are going to do a storyboard to go along with your script. This is to ensure that all group members are on board with the plans and know exactly what to prepare themselves on doing. When the story has been written and then re-written into a script and the storyboard has been done, you should move on to practicing your scenes with each other. Learn your lines by heart and try to think about the emotion behind the words you say. This is where you have the opportunity to practice intonation and rhythm when speaking. You also have to think about your body language when rehearsing your play. What your body says has to be in sync with your verbal communication is conveying and is just as important. After doing these steps it is time to present your play in front of the class. If you need costumes or props you have to sort it out yourselves. After watching the play all the other students have to be prepared to answer questions as well as asking them and also be able to give some constructive criticism.
