We wanted to gather ideas around what our students already know about "Drama", so we had the students work together to brainstorm what they already know or think of when they hear/see the word, DRAMA.
On small whiteboards, the recorder of the group wrote down all of the ideas that the group members suggested.
Then, together as a large group, we recorded ideas from each of the groups about what DRAMA is! Here is what we discovered...
|This is what our classes came up with as a large group!|
Ms. Meehan and Ms. Marra then created their own dramatic performance to share with the students. We created a tableau to introduce the idea of communicating a specific message without words, sounds, or movement. A still image has such power! -- This is the beginning of Grade 3 Tableaux
We will take pictures of our tableau to share with you soon!
