  1. 1. Create a Comic!<br />Creating a comic strip of a scene in the play<br />
  2. 2. How can we remember what “plot” is?<br />Freytag’s elements:<br />
  3. 3. Or…..<br />Something a bit cooler….<br /><iframe width="560" height="349" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe><br />
  4. 4. Task<br />Products:<br />Comic strip (3-6 panels)<br />Analysis<br />Embedded in edmodo<br />Collated: An online comic to help people reading or studying the play understand the plot. Pressure’s on!<br />
  5. 5. Task<br />Activity 1:<br />Create a comic strip representing plot of the play in a different form<br /> What do we mean by representing? <br />Taking the ideas of a text in one form and using another form to present these ideas<br />
  6. 6. Task: activity 1<br />What are the essential elements to include?<br /> • 3 – 6 panels<br /> • pairs – points for appropriate water hole behaviour!<br /> • 1 scene<br /> • pick out the IMPORTANT elements<br /> • what elements of plot are in your scene? <br />
  7. 7. Task: Activity 1<br />What to use?<br />Up to you!<br />ReadWriteThink Comic Creator:<br />ToonDoo:<br />Just make sure you can save it or print it to a file somehow!<br />
  8. 8. Task: Activity 1<br />What do we need to think about when we make a comic?<br /> Generic conventions:<br />The features which are common to the comic book genre: block colours, caricature drawings, lack of detail, speech bubbles, frames, sequence.<br />Important elements of the plot: Freytag’s descriptors – how do we create tension? <br /> how do we convey the mood?<br /> how do we show conflict?<br /> how can we demonstrate a resolution?<br />So, consider how you will use the generic conventions to demonstrate these important elements of plot! <br />
  9. 9. Activity 2<br />Analysis:<br />For 3 elements: <br /> why did you choose this visual feature to represent that element of the play’s plot?<br />Guidelines on handout and edmodo<br />
  10. 10. Activity 2<br />Analysis:<br />Visual feature? Classroom backdrop.<br />Why this particular visual representation?<br />Working class, simplicity, inadequacy?<br />3. Generic conventions? Lines, frame, caricature, colour<br />4. Element of plot? Exposition: introduction to the demographic and attitudes of Blackrock<br />5. Representation in drama? Stage directions <br />
  11. 11. Activity 2<br />Example: Scene 1<br />Visual element chosen: Classroom backdrop<br />Generic convention<br />COLOUR: <br />Grey, black, brown.<br />Contributes to classroom looking drab- indicates working class school.<br />Introducing us to the demographic.<br />
  12. 12. Visual Element: Classroom Backdrop<br />Genreic Convention FRAME: lets us know that there is a powerful and short scene or event which introduces the play.<br />Generic Convention<br />CARICATURE: Contributes to our introduction to characters-we get the sense that characters and attitudes are as stereotypical as the figures.<br />
  13. 13. Pairs and Scenes:<br />REMEMBER! Bonus points for positive water hole behaviour!<br />
