Partner Pantomime Activity
With your partner you are to create a 5 minute pantomime activity to present to the class. You are to focus on ONE activity that BOTH partners can act out. You will come up with a synopsis (a short one paragraph description about what your pantomime is about). This will be read before you begin your pantomime, so make sure its a good explanation that sets the tone to what the audience will be watching.
Remember your staging.
Remember to use your facings.
Remember to how important expressions, body languages, and gestures are.
BE BIG! BE SPECIFIC!
You will be graded based on the rubric attached and on how well your synopsis matches your pantomime.
You must turn in the following:
1 Pantomime Rubric
1 Typed Synopsis
(one per partnership, not one per person)
*Any partnership presenting Thursday will receive extra credit.
Notebook Check THURSDAY 10/18:
I will be checking to see if you have the following for Notebook Check #2:
-Pantomime Reflection (How do you feel your pantomime skills have improved thorough these past few weeks?)
*If you do not have any of these items in your binder and journal I suggest you get any missing information from here to then.
*This notebook check will be worth 3 grades
-Students are to have their pantomimes ready for presentations starting Tuesday 09/11. Make sure that you have your outline in your notebooks to show me when you come up to present.
