Drama - Essay about our group piece on cyberbullying.

Extracts from this document...


´╗┐Evaluation of performance: Bullying When my group was assigned I was bit concerned as well as happy. We had two members of the group that were consistently messing around; it was disruptive.

Amanda Todd; fifteen year old girl who has been blackmailed and cyberbullied by an anonymous man, who ruined her life which ended with a tragedy.

Our group numerous of ideas of how could we set this out. However, we went with Eva?s idea, because it was the most powerful,effective, vigorous way to give out this message.

Everyone was disappointed, infuriated with him. We have decided that we will minimize his parts in our play otherwise our performance would not work out how it was meant to.

All of them knew the answer to the questions. I was surprised. Some pupils came up to me saying that the performence tought them something knew, and they have not know that it can effect people to commit suicide. I enjoyed myself with year seven. I have to say I had the best group. They?ve done what was asked from them, their drama techinques and their knowledge shocked me, I wouldn?t of though they would know so much at this age! They had plenty to tell by acting; waiting to give out a message. Overall I am more than happy with the performance, we have shown to year sevens.

I have gained experience to perform for different audience not just the classroom. As well as see how hard the teachers job is (In drama sense).
