Tuesday January 8

Today you will have a few minutes to discuss your PR team plans but we’re going to dig into the play a bit more with an Act 1 lecture. In this lecture I’m also going to teach you how to do:  Cornell style notes. You will use these during our lecture on Act 1.

2) Act 1 Lecture:

3) Act 1 Challenge:

Getting Gify with It

Choose a scene from Act 1 and retell the scene using only GIFs.  The winning team will be the first one that guesses each group’s scene summary correctly.

  • Each team will be randomly assigned a scene to summarize.
  • Be crafty with your GIF choices. Don’t be literal. It needs to be possible for groups to guess your scene using the GIFs you chose but you don’t want to make it easy or that decreases your team’s chance of winning the challenge. How? In my experience, it’s easiest to brainstorm key words for the events and ideas you want to communicate like “manipulation, power, evil, darkness, blood,”    Search the GIFs using one of those key words and then choose one that’s not too literal or perhaps suggests something about implicit meaning rather than the explicit meaning of the text.
  • You must have a minimum of 5 GIFs. Share them by pasting them into a Google slide presentation. Submit to Google Classroom
