Learning task 2: Developing ideas

  1. Use the planning chart (Word 43KB) to note down key details about a journey you have taken.
  2. Using the chart for reference, retell the experience of the journey to a partner. Your partner should ask questions to help you draw out details and clarify points. You could also extend this approach with student directed theatre:

    (1) Listening and Speaking Variation - students could form new groups and relate one of the stories to the new group members who have not heard it. Then groups could be reassembled with the orginal story-teller checking how accurately their story had been re-told.

    (2) Presenting Extension - the story-teller becomes the director of a short drama based on their story. S/he casts other group members to adopt key roles, informs them clearly of the sort of person they are to play, provides explicit details of the story and rehearses the group through the drama prior to a sharing with the whole class. For more guidance on managing this approach see "Drama and Learning" (P 30) (Learning Media 1990)
