Drama 7.3 : Storytelling Time : A folk tail, Legend or a Myth from your country!

A Chinese myth: Pangu breaking the sky

I think because people did not know how did the sky and the ground got separate, so they came up this story.

The story line: once upon a time, when the sky and the ground haven’t been separate, there a one giant –Pangu –slept there — one hundred and eight thousand years — one day — he wake up — use a big axe and cut in to the darkness 38dbb6fd5266d016d7285758942bd40735fa3589

— all the things separate in to two part: the heavy and muddy things change in to the ground and the clear and light things change in to the sky — but he think the sky and the ground will get together again, so, he use his hand and head to carried the sky and step on the ground to keep it down



everyday, the sky got higher and higher, and Pangu got taller and taller. After years and years, one day, the sky would not get down with the ground again — Pangu — tired — fall to the ground.

His breath — change in to the wind and the cloud.    his voice — thunder  his eyes — the moon and the sun  his skin–the earth  his blood–river…

His whole body change in to the universe.

Drama: the Speech — Adam


So, this is my speech. I thin my sentences are not very clear and smooth, so it is hard to get my point, especially at the beginning. Sometimes I got a little bit mixed up. So I think next time I will practice at home first because it is not as easy as I think. I always said “Om” because I am kind of not prepared.

I think my best skill is my body language. It made my speech more clearly because you can see and hear information at the some time. I think my pause were very good, too. I did not miss a pause. For some other physicality, the people who are listening could not see my palm cards. My facial expression was serious which made the stories like it really happened.( Not one knows it’s a real story or not. But I think they are real.)

I think for the next time, I must practice more times because that will make the tone and the sentences more sooth and clear, and have less mistakes. That way, my point will be more clear and my speech will be more interesting.

This is a speech from my classmate, Lukus. I think his speech is captivating because it was more clear because the sentences are smooth and his speech is kind of funny. He did not have many body language but the speech and his idea is very clear because his expressed are clear, like the UFO looks like a flying pizza with six lights, you can imagine the appearance even if you did not really saw it before. I think I need more clear expressed like the pizza one.
