By reading the article, I learned that as children grow up they start getting along with their classmates and people around them, they start learning how to communicate emotions, to think, be creative and solve problems.

Dramatization, an action in which language is seen as a mode of symbolic act rather than a mode of knowledge, was my primary drawback. I have always been a quite person and performing on stage has been my frail point, but nonetheless I chose to perform on stage casing my fears inside and performing in Authur Miller's The Crucible. As I commenced my drive, with frustration and aggravation, I began to make it my aim to advance in my shortcoming, dramatization. Ultimately we reached a point where success was within our reach, at the night of the performance. This brought me satisfaction and fulfillment for my endeavor in the play.
I feel that the presenting of a fact that the anti-war protesters spitting is considered a fact in the play is wrong, since we know that this did not happen at all. That is showing a wrong fact and many people could end up very confused. I understand that we cannot change the play since it has already been written, but we do need to let people understand that the spitting, did in fact, not happen. I understand that there may have been SOME spitting, like an individual to another individual, but it was not everyone who was anti-war to the soldiers that went to Vietnam.

The narrator introduces the play and what happen to Verity and why she is in the position she is in. The narrator talks to the audience in 4th wall and informs the audience of Verity’s future. The narrator performs the same monologue at the end of play. This reminds the audience once again that this is a true story of a young child that went through all this pain and suffering. During lesson 5 in-groups of 6 we created a piece of drama using the monologue. With the idea of gossip we created a piece that used the text as guidelines but had a realistic twist on how people get the facts wrong and make the story more interesting. We used dramatic tension in this piece when characters began to taunt someone about her past. Using the words ‘neetz’ we built up an atmosphere and tension between characters.
This movie is about a little boy and girl that grow up together; they fall in love with the game of basketball and each other. They didn't really get along as they grew up because the boy, Q, didn't think it was ok for girls to play ball. They go through a series of trials and they separate and find their way back to each other. In the end he realizes she is the one for him. This is seen in our society today because when you do something you love, there are others that love it to. These two characters have that connection between the two of the one thing that they love. They didn't let "love for the game" stand in the way of "true love".
