How to put in note form for controlled assessment and details about tomorrow

Mrs Brooks - 01 Jul 2015


Tomorrow:
 
  • Library at 8.50am (ready for 9am start)
  • Notes will be check and must be in note form (booklets, books, my notes not allowed) see page allowance below.
  • You may have water bottle with you
  • SILENT controlled assessment conditions
  • 5 hours (+ those with extra time) - if you finish and are content finished you will be allowed to leave (but not before lunch)


This is going over what we did today - have a look at how I have split these points down.

You need to make sure you do not have full sentences

you are allowed the following in the way of notes:

Rationale: 1 Page
Development: 1 1/2  - 2 pages
Performance: 1 Page

In the controlled assessment you are suggested to spend 1 hour on Rationale, 2 on Development and 1 on Performance. I would personally spend longer on the performance as this is the section that has all the fresh thoughts from totally so it may need slightly more planning time.



ORIGINAL first 2 paragraphs

Rationale

The theme to our performance was invented from the stimulus of the welsh song called ‘breuddwydion’. We chose this stimulus, because it gave us the feeling of life in the past. This then lead us to the idea of an important event in history – world war two. World war two gave us the spark to think of the story about two brothers that go to war but then get separated. The storyline also gives us the opportunity to use meaningful physical theatre.

The practitioner that we have is the physical theatre group called Frantic Assembly. In their performances they use contact work and other physical techniques like chair duets and round by through. For chair duets, more than one person sits on chairs that are next to each other and perform a call and response motif. Chair duets consist of speed, fluency and sharp movements to make the piece look a lot better when it is performed with music. They always start in a neutral position and there is a focus point that you should continuously look at throughout the piece unless you have to face away from it. Frantic Assembly use techniques like these to convey emotions through the use of subtext, which makes the audience think more about how a character is truly feeling.


I then broke it down - taking out the connecting words and adding in -- // ++ to turn it into clear notes
