Imagination shapes our world. Unlike knowledge, imagination will move us forward to create the future. For example, doctors and scientists are working towards the future. Doctors and scientists are using the imagination in their brain to create cures for cancer, HIV/AIDs, Alzheimer's disease, malaria, and tuberculosis. They can not only use knowledge to create a cure.
This energetic character just really called to me and expanded my comfort zone in the lines of doing weird crap on a stage. The entire experience was difficult. From designing the mask to creating a scene, everything had to be thought about and logical. For my group it was hard on the first day to even talk to each other let alone create a comedic performance. Also, the play had to make sense so we had to go through a lot of ideas and scenes to make sure it all flowed.
Skill: Action Skill Action skill is defined as the skill the helper can utilise into ensuring the client is able to make the effective choices in order to prevent the clients from staying at their present situation of old stories, feelings or beliefs that are disempowering (Cormier, 2016). Technique: Cornier (2016) mentioned that the techniques used under the action skill consisted of providing (1) questions, (2) reflection of meaning, and (3) challenging responses. Method: According to Cormier (2016), questions consisted of open-ended questions which encourage the clients to elaborate further on the clients’ issues and closed or focused questions which enable the clients to response with a single word. The reflection of meaning is another
An imaginative strategy is seen as something that is characterized by something being inventive. I feel that an imaginative evaluation activity would be an enjoyable strategy to implement when assessing students as the students would feel more relaxed and comfortable when participating in an enjoyable activity, it would also be valuable to the teacher as they would be able to assess the student’s knowledge and understanding of the topic during the activity. As identified in Kyriacou’s book Essential Teaching Skills, “Assessment activities can act as a spur to pupils to organise their work well and to learn what is required so as to achieve well at these activities. The spur may be largely based on intrinsic motivation, extrinsic motivation, or a mix of both” (Kyriacou, 2007). The imaginative strategy I used was in the conclusion of my lesson plan to assess the students learning.
Impression Management- Dramaturgical Perspective Impression Management is defined as the act of managing and controlling the perceptions others form of them. Although the definition is glaringly simple, the issues revolving around impression management are quite complex and have attracted sociologists across the world to study this area of human behaviour in various settings. The gamut of Impression Management has been a controversial issue for a long time now due to the ethical implications. Few experts have expounded that Impression Management falls under the purview of managing impression to achieve personal goals and often equate this phenomena as an act of pretence and deceit. But the question remains, is this true?
The class begun with the same procedure like the first class. Ms Pat told us to start off by walking around again. We had to keep in mind about three important criteria: Intention, direction and emotions. We had to incorporate these three elements while walking because they relate to an actor’s movements. Ms Pat introduced to us various styles of walking.
In order to perform convincingly, actors need to become emotionally involved with their characters, some, following the Stanislavsky method, take this to extremes and temporarily ‘become’ the characters they are to play even beyond the confines of the stage, adopting their mannerisms and physical traits. The audience, on the other hand, allows itself to become emotionally involved with the characters in order to care about what happens to them. Coleridge referred to this as “a willing suspension of disbelief”, where realism and logic are sacrificed for the sake of enjoyment and the unbelievable is believed. The audience, though, also requires language to understand the words of the actors and perception to interpret the meaning of their gestures. Without the employment of these two ways of knowing, the emotional response from the audience would not be possible.
The enactive representation focused on the motor responses where students perform various tasks to learn new ideas. Learning involves hand-on or direct manipulation of materials in an experiment. As applied in the topic forces and equilibrium, the teacher can focused more on the different activities such as model making. Students will learn by doing using a deeper understanding about a specific concept in mechanics. This will motivate the students and will show interest in learning the topic.
There is great information in this chapter just like all the other chapters. However, the topic of self-presentation really stuck out to me. Self-presentation is relating to how we act and how we want people to perceive us during our daily activities. That makes sense. We all want to present ourselves in a proper manner.
