For the last 3 months in Drama, we have been working on games that will help us practice offering ideas, accepting ideas and basic stuff. Today, we did a Tournament and chose 2 games we wanted to do. We got into groups of 4 and did it infront of the class. I thought I did a better job on a game called Space Jump which I did at the first. I offered ideas by saying that I found a coin and asking my friend how much it will be if I will sell it. I accepted ideas when my friend, Ashley said she was hungry(in the scene) so I pretended giving her cookie and ate it together. I thought I could improve by thinking more quickly, use facial expressions, and modulating voices. The skills we used in this performance are offering, accepting, thinking quickly, and making a scene from any start. This is my group’s video playing the game called SpaceJump.

In the Criteria:
You will always offer ideas and accept other’s ideas- I thought I got a 8/10 because I offered ideas and accepted all the ideas.
You will always share the story/scene with other players- I thought I got 7/10 because I shared what I want to do to other players but not all the time.
You will always name the object or introduce the situation so other players understand- I thought I got a 8/10 because I introduces the object for example what I found and told the ideas of the situation.
You will always keep the story going to a logical conclusion- I thought I got 6/10 because I was really bad at ending it and continuing to the end.
You will always create and keep being a believable character in a place that matches the character -I thought I got a 7/10 because I stayed in the position I was and then didn’t go off topic and I acted a character that matches to the scene.
