Extra Credit Due April 24, 2017

Also be ready to play back your Narration or Documentary Assignment that was due last Wednesday in class on Monday.

Extra Credit – Hallmark

Pages 27 and 28 of your Workbook have this Extra Credit Assignment. This is due on Monday along with your Listening Grids and finishing up the rest of the Real Person reads.

You will find errors in almost every script you get. This is just a fact of life these days. People are moving so fast and during their editing process, they fill in what they think they see and the mistakes just are not seen.

So, you have to really make sure you understand what you are saying when you read a script aloud. If it doesn’t make sense, you need to recognize that! And then either ask for clarification, or figure out what the issue might be. It could be simple grammar, or a missing word. Grammar is usually fixed on the fly. A missing word is something you will probably have to ask about.

If you don’t notice that a word is missing, that could be one of two things – the missing word is an adjective and the sentence makes sense without it. Or YOU are not really hearing yourself as you say it.


Attend Play – Collect 2 Points


Original Scripts written by San Diego City College students, directed by City faculty.

Attend one of the performance and write a couple of paragraphs about which play you liked the best and why. What actors stood out and why. It could be for their excellent performance, or something where you felt they could have done better. It could also be a comment about the casting if you felt someone was great for the part or miscast. Just think about what you saw.

Performances are March 10, 11, 17, and 18 at 8:00; March 12 and 19 at 2:00.

Questions? Matt Thompson,

Extra Credit (Cheese Wiz) Moved to Mon Nov 14, 2016

Because I didn’t get this posted in time, I will move this Extra Credit opportunity to be due on Monday, November 14, 2016.

See Pages 30 and 31 of your Workbook for the Assignment.

Practice – Cheese Wiz.

I do NOT want you to change the script here. Try to understand why it is written the way it is written.

Be ready to talk about what you think is going on and what the writer wants you to do as the talent.

Extra Credit for Wed Nov 2, 2016

Monday you should have turned in Hallmark for Extra Credit. Wednesday, November 2, is Call Central. This is worth 1 point of extra credit. If you have been late to class or left early without letting me know, you have been accumulating a half-point each time, so consider that when deciding if Extra Credit is needed.

Page 28 and 29 of your Workbook is where you will find the instructions for this assignment.
