Improvisation Tournament Reflection

I think I used offer and acceptance in this scene because, my partners have to offer an idea to me and I have to accept it. Also, if I don’t give them an offer I would get out.  The hard part is that since you might have an idea all ready in your head, there is a chance that you might not be able to use the idea. For example, I had an idea for one of the incidents that the robot had, but I couldn’t use the idea because when I was about to use the idea, the bell rang meaning I had to wrap the story up.

I think that I could improve my performance by not hesitating when it was my turn, and I could’ve  thought of better scenarios to say when it was my turn. For example, I think that instead of saying ,”The robot had to pay double,” I could’ve said something like,” The robot became very angry for having to pay.” Also I feel that in this performance in the end I was trying to funny, but I could’ve said something that might’ve been better instead of trying to be funny, I said that the robot was a couch potato, but I could’ve said something better like,”The robot found a better job.”

I could use the skills in this game in performance by, using the skills in case someone forgot their lines and had to create something new. Or, if I forgot got my lines I could use this.  Also if I was in a play and I was daydreaming, I could’ve been there for a long time just standing while it was my line, and I could use this to help me out.

I think for this performance I would give myself a 6/8 the two points that I lost are because I didn’t say well things, and I hesitated a lot before I spoke.

You will always offer ideas and accept other’s ideas

I think for this I got a 7/8. The one point lost is because I feel that I said things that couldn’t work because of what my partners said.

You will always share the story/scene with other players

I think for this I got a 6/8 because in this game it is kind of hard to answer this question because you don’t really decide when you go, but I think I would do this ok.

You will always name the object or introduce the situation so other players understand

I think for this I got a 6/8 because for some things the stuff I said didn’t really go with some of the things my partner said.

You will always keep the story going to a logical conclusion

For this I think I got a 7/8 because I started to conclude the story before the bell was rung, so the story would’ve ended before the time limit.

You will always create and keep being a believable character in a place that matches the character

I think I got an 8/8 because I felt like I was telling a story about a real character.

Reflection on Improvisation

Improv is a part of acting and sometimes used in dancing.  It is when you act or dance without a certain script of routine. For example, in drama if you forget your lines you make something up. That is improvisation.  Accepting a scene is very important. When you accept a scene its telling your partner that you will do the scene. If you block the scene,(you don’t accept the scene), then the scene will be hard to carry on. You must name the object that you are talking about, or else the audience won’t understand what it is that you’re talking about. When you share a story you are making sure that everyone is involved with the scene and everybody is dong an equal part in the scene, also if you don’t listen to the other people in the scene, it will be hard to carry on the scene. If you don’t stay in character, then it will be obvious that you are acting, and the won’t connect with the scene. I offered and accepted the scene in many ways. For example, when Freya got stuck in the snow, I didn’t say anything like,”No, its not that deep,” and O ffered things like when I had a chainsaw.


Unit 3 Spanish Reflection

I have learned multiple new conjugations. Such as, ser, tener, and gustar-like verbs. I have learned many adjectives, and physical features. I have have learned that in Spanish you switch around the nouns. Also, I have started to study more and more. I think that I still need to study more.  I Will we still work on conjugation in unit 4? What is unit 4 mainly focusing on?
