Direct Instruction

The learning intention for this lesson was to create a character, and to write that character into different situations (with the intention of acting it out later in drama exercise).

The students took a selfie and used .png images to create a 'disguise' for themselves. We took turns acting as our characters in different situations, and then reading our own scripts with a buddy.

Reflection

As you can see in the video the students really enjoyed this task. Unfortunately however, the initial part of the task using the .png images to create a 'disguise' was a really good "time waster" and many students did not finish the extension part of the task - which in hindsight was the most exciting part.

Things to note

.png images are simply a file type that hold a transparent background, and therefore overlay on top of new images.
