Drama in schools

second edition

Like theatre, drama in schools can unlock the use of imagination, intellect, empathy and courage. Through it, ideas, responses and feelings can be expressed and communicated. It carries the potential to challenge, to question and to bring about change.

...of Isabelle’s wealth just so she can laugh at Clindor for leaving her for Isabelle and her wealth. The play did not intellectually stimulate me but emotionally affected me by bringing on pity and hatred towards Isabelle and her maid. The theme I extracted from The Illusion was that life is a theater. Everyone goes through the cycles of love: heartbreak, deception and finally procuring it. The director, Andrew McGinn, exploits this idea by intertwining the real life of Calisto/Clindor and the role he plays. The cave could be a metaphor for the theatre and its spectators. Pridamant and Alcandre would be the spectators and the illusions would be the theatre. It was overall a good play, just confusing at times. This play is relevant to the Drama students of University of Washington because The Illusion uses many stock characters that were famous back in the 17th century. The young lovers (Clindor and Isabelle), a comic servant (maid) and an erudite old man (Geronte) were stock characters that were used in the play. Enculturation could also be a reason, the process in which we learn about a culture. Many UW students probably have not seen a play in real life and this would be a great opportunity to do so and maybe learn a thing or two about the culture the play was set in....

...of the Oedipus Rex were announced at the start of the season. Off-off Broadway versions will inevitably follow. The Brooklyn Academy of Music even hosted a dance/theatre piece based on the Eleusinian Mysteries. 1 The Classic Stage Company, an off-Broadway theater group devoted to performance and adaptation of Western classics, currently receives more scripts that re-work Greek tragedy than any other category of drama. 2 From a global perspective, New York is simply reflecting a trend set by important modern playwrights and directors worldwide. Greek drama now occupies a regular place in the London theater season. In the past twenty years, acclaimed productions have been mounted not only in Europe but also in Japan, India, and Africa. Translations are even beginning to proliferate in China, occasionally with unexpected results. A recent Chinese translator of Sophocles’ Oedipus Rex referred to all the Greek gods generically as Apollo, since he could count on his audience’s ability to recognize this name from the United States space program. 3 The Greek theater festival at Delphi has played host to many of these performances, with the result that, for example, the Greek National Theater’s 1998 performance of Medea showed a significant Japanese influence. 4 What accounts for this current revival of Greek drama and what are its implications for us as scholars and teachers of Classics? As classicists, we tend to do a good deal of soul-searching about our field’s relevance for and......

...Types of Drama Tragedy- a play written in a serious, sometimes impressive or elevated style, in which things go wrong and cannot be set right except at great cost or sacrifice. Aristotle said that tragedy should purge our emotions by evoking pity and fear (or compassion and awe) in us, the spectators. The tragic pattern: 1. a theme of fatal passion (excluding love) as a primary motive 2. an outstanding personality as center of conflict (classical tragedy demanded a “noble” character) 3. a vital weakness within the hero’s character (his tragic flaw which precipitates the tragedy) 4. the conflict within the hero is the source of tragedy. However, since Nietzsche, the tragic flaw is often found to be in the universe itself, or in man’s relationship to it, rather than in the hero himself. Comedy- a play written in a kindly or humorous, perhaps bitter or satiric vein, in which the problems or difficulties of the characters are resolved satisfactorily, if not for all characters, at least from the point of view of the audience. Low characters as opposed to noble; characters not always changed by the action of the play; based upon observation of life. Comedy and tragedy are concerned more with character, whereas farce and melodrama are concerned more with plot. Melodrama- a play in which the characters are types rather than individuals, the story and situations exaggerated to the point of improbability or sensationalism......

Xyz Pharma

...Project Portfolio Management at XYZ Pharma Part 1- The objectives in the Project Portfolio Management include strategically organizing the importance of different issues within the company, focus more on the sales growth rather than the sales figure, and prioritize the research and development. The constraints that take place within the case are linked to the discovery of different drugs and the risks that follow. Also, John Smith mentioned lengthening and shortening the steps of developing a new drug; which plays a factor on the developing cost and will increase significantly. Another constraint is the generic competitors. In the article it mentioned that the generic drugs to the newly made drugs can be freely sold without clinical trials. The risks involved within XYZ Pharma are mainly associated with the cost factors. It is extremely expensive to spend money on the drugs that never reach the market. Each process takes years to get through and the percentage of drugs that make it through each stage decreases each time. Stated in the case study, on average only 1 in 5 drugs that enter the clinical trials are launched onto the market. Also, if a drug doe’s make it to be sold in the market, there is only a 30% chance the drug is successful enough to recover from the development costs to yield a healthy return. Companies must rely on a limited number of highly successful products to properly finance their R&D and companies in their recent years have only been......

Comparative Essay About Significant Leadership Skills Based on Three Research Articles

...requires a range of special qualities, such as communication skills or an ability to work under pressure. Three recent articles (Cappelli et al. 2010, Ladkin and Weber 2011, Useem 2010) have analysed a variety of characteristics of successful leaders. However, all three authors analyse this topic from the different perspectives. While the reflection by Useem is related to the military view, the reports by Ladkin & Weber and Cappelli et al. focus on the attributes of successful leaders in conditions of Hong Kong tourism industry and Indian business respectively. All authors concur that one of the most important factors for outstanding leadership is an connection with a team. This review will compare these articles in regard to three main aspects of successful leadership, focus on mission, team work and making decisions. All three articles provide an idea about establishing company’s mission as a top priority. Cappelli et al. and Ladkin & Weber point out that taking a long-term view is a crucial for the success of the organization (Cappelli et al. p.92, Ladkin&Weber p.278). At the same time, Useem argues that even though ‘focus on mission’ is one of the most important principles for leaders, they should always take into account the interests of team members and only after that leaders may pursue their own benefits (p.4). Another significant point of all three articles is a necessity to inspire employees to pursue the interests of the company. However, all three authors......

...Did this article catch my interest, yes, because it’s talking about how bigger areas of where people live and economies growth of industries and pollution rates are more affected by the bacteria and the difference in the cell biology growth process. Also the difference between the growth processes in one land verses another. This article did hold my interest throughout reading it to the end. I had a hard time at first understanding what they were doing and how. I don’t feel like they explained how as much as what they were doing. Understanding what they were meaning took extra research to clarify meanings to the type of research and the components to what they were researching. Also the microbiology components and the different types of cells, are unknown areas of knowledge to me. So again it took some extra research and definitions to understand exactly what they may have been talking about and the different processes to the components that made up this process and outcome. This article helped my interest in economy and the life to life. To me the world and its natural resources that it with holds are slowly changing due to the economic changes we have inquired and worries me of the long term outcomes we will be facing in decades to come. I wish we recognized this more and acted upon it more. I feel like we are stuck in the mind set of businesses and advancing in technology that isn’t really looking into the earths affect and even human and animal’s long term affect. What......

...Type of Drama : MELOW DRAMA Mellow Drama - It is also a form of acting. The word "melodrama" comes from the Greek word for song "melody", combined with "drama". Music is used to increase the emotional response or to suggest characters. * The term originated from the early 19th-century French word mélodrame, which is derived from Greek melos, music, and French drame, drama * A melodrama is a dramatic work that exaggerates plot and characters in order to appeal to the emotions, often with strongly stereotyped characters. Language, behaviour, or events which resemble melodramas are also called melodramatic. In scholarly and historical musical contexts melodramas are dramas of the 18th and 19th centuries in which orchestral music or song was used to accompany the action. * Typically, these films focused on sensational plots revolving around tragedy, loss, and unrequited love, and featured long-suffering protagonists, almost always female, trying in vain to overcoming impossible odds. Example: Wuthering Heights 1939 Also one of the great literary adaptationsof all time, Wuthering Heights was a sweeping romantic drama about class division and love doomed to tragedy. Directed by William Wyler from Emily Brontë’s classic novel, the film starredLaurence Olivier as Heathcliff, a former orphan who has been taken into a wealthy family and grows to love his foster sister, Cathy (Merle Oberon). Though she feels the same, Cathy doesn’t want to give up her well-to-do......

...Bajrangi Group started as a supplier of wafers and namkeens to local brands. Due to the shore supply of that product they decided to make their own product line. The fame of taste reached to the whole Gujarat hence it was time to take over the whole Gujarat. Chataka Pataka Tangy Tomato Snacks happens to be all over Gujarat — present in almost every paan shop and organised retail outlet, but with no jumbo billboards screaming its delights. With simple ideas that may seem outlandish in this age of brazen marketing, Chataka creator Bajrangi Wafers Pvt Ltd has managed to fend off bigger players like LasyCo and Jagilram's in the Rs 600-crore Gujarat market. Bajrangi survives solely on word-of-mouth publicity. This publicity comes from the Gujarat-based snacks maker's ability to localise flavours. Bajrangi understands the palate of the consumer well. Indeed, Bajrangi products like Chataka Pataka, Ratlami Sev and Sing Bhujiya, among others, suit the tastes of a specific market. The company offers masala wafers to cater to the Gujarati palate, chaat masala for the Maharashtra market and a range of spicy snacks for Rajasthan. Here, it scores over Jagilram's, which too has flavours to cater to the North Indian palate, by a better understanding of the Gujarati consumer. Bajrangi's pampers the Gujarati's sweet tooth by keeping its khatta-meetha less spicy. Bajrangi‘s product mix is just right. Bajrangi’s share of the local potato and vegetable chips market grew to 13.7% from 9.5%,......

Drama Essya‘Dulce et Decorum” is a poem that was written by Wilfred Owen in 1917, during World War I. It provides a very dramatic description of a gas attack suffered by a group of soldiers. He provides vivid imagery throughout the play. He has a depressed tone throughout that helps the reader understand the hopeless feeling and sad experiences they endured, psychological and physical. In the first stanza he uses a lot of similes and metaphors to help set the scene. Owen uses different tools to help understand the event. The whole play builds up to the last two lines. “ To children ardent for some desperate glory, the old lie: Dulce et decorum est Pro patria mori.” In this story, Owen uses multiple aspects of drama. One of the biggest uses is irony. Irony is present in many of the literacy works. Including the title of the play, the title means it is sweet and good to die for your country but the horrific descriptions of the effects of war in the poem show that it is anything but good to die for your country. The main problem is what people were told about the way war was. His illustration of the reality of war describes an incident of exhausted soldiers working through the mud of the battlefield. They are leaving the front line in order to rest for a few days in a safer place, but they are attacked by mustard gas. This was a substance used in chemical warfare. It reacts with water in the lungs to form a corrosive chemical that destroys the lungs which causes the individual......

...Who was William Shakespeare? Shakespeare is William Shakespeare, one of the English-speaking world's greatest playwrights and poets, who possessed a great knowledge of human nature and transformed the English theatre. Yet many facts of his life remain a mystery. Some have been acquired from painstaking looks at the records of the time, so that this summary is based on generally agreed facts. It has been said that we only know three things about Shakespeare: that he was born, married and died. He was baptised on April 26, 1564; we do not know his birth date, but many scholars believe it was April 23, 1564. His father was John Shakespeare (who was a glover and leather merchant) and his mother Mary Arden (who was a landed local heiress). John had a remarkable run of success as a merchant, alderman, and high bailiff of Stratford, during William's early childhood. His fortunes declined, however, in the late 1570s. William lived for most of his early life in Stratford-upon-Avon. We do not know exactly when he went to London but he is said to have arrived in 1592. There is great conjecture about Shakespeare's childhood years, especially regarding his education. It is surmised by scholars that Shakespeare attended the free grammar school in Stratford, which at the time had a reputation to rival that of Eton. While there are no records extant to prove this claim, Shakespeare's knowledge of Latin and Classical Greek would tend to support this theory. In addition,......

...ARTICLE SUMMARY OF CUSTOMER VALUE-BASED PRICING STRATEGIES: WHY COMPANIES RESIST Basically this paper discussed the challenges that company faced in implementing the value based pricing strategy and recommendation how to win over other approaches namely cost-based pricing, and competition-based pricing. Costumer value-based pricing is defined as the factor in determining the product price is depend on the product value and service quality deliver to customers. In other word, the price of the product or service is depending on its performance. The more value customers perceive on the product, the more expensive the product will be.

On the other hand, competition-based approach is the price of the product is determined based on the price of competitors’ product. Normally, it follows the average markets price. In addition, each approach has its own strength. For instances, data for both cost-based and competition-based pricing are easy to access since it already available. While, customer value-based pricing is takes into consideration of customer perception in pricing its product or service. Thus, the segmented customers could afford to buy the product or service. Nevertheless, researcher found that the main strength of customer value-based pricing has competitive advantages over other two approaches especially in pricing of new product. But in reality,......

...through drama for oral skills development Laura Miccoli This paper presents the results of an investigation into the value of using drama in a Brazilian university classroom. Drawing on Di Pietro (1987) and Via (1976) on the advantages of using drama in language learning, from Mezirow (1990) and Schön (1991) on the importance of reflection for promoting meaningful learning, and from Donato and McCormick (1994) and Lukinsky (1990) on the e¤ectiveness of portfolios as a tool to promote reflection, the paper presents a case study of the use of drama in an oral skill class, describing the course structure and classroom procedures. It includes learners’ voices as taken from their portfolios, and evaluates results, presenting setbacks and possible solutions. Finally, it encourages the use of drama and portfolios for transformative and emancipatory learning. Introduction As teachers we are always looking for ways to improve our classes and motivate our students. Yet, teaching conditions may not be as ideal as we would like them to be. Sometimes we get too many students; often they have di¤erent proficiency levels; sometimes both problems arise in the same class. This was my situation: I had to teach a conversation class where the level of proficiency of the 37 students ranged from basic to advanced. Knowing that a traditional format would not work, the experiences of interactionists like Di Pietro (1987) and the actor/teacher Via (1976) helped me decide to bring drama and play...
