Texts and Contexts

Class Presentation

Assignment: Group Presentation on Sleuth by Anthony Shaffer
Dates: Presentations on October8. Each group will sign up for a time – first come, first served – but only after they have agreed upon a topic.
Presentation length: 15 minutes (I will stop you at 20).
Presentation components: Part 1 – Dramatic Presentation of a short excerpt or sequence of excerpts that relate to your assigned theme.
Part 2 – Class Presentation of an analysis of your dramatic presentation. Why did you choose the excerpt(s) you did? How does it illustrate your assigned theme? Why did you make the choices you did about costume/performance/ casting/tone/etc.? A written copy of your presentation must be handed before your presentation.
Part 3 – Answer questions that your classmates might have.
Participation component: INDIVIDUALLY submit a MAX ONE PAGE reflection on your contribution to the project. Explain how you helped your group with the presentation. *Note: be short and to the point. Do not reflect on the QUALITY of your work, merely on WHAT your work entailed. Do not attempt to determine the quality or lack of quality of your own work.This will not be included in your group’s presentation grade, but will factor into your class attendance/participation grade for the term.
Grading Rubric:
• Your group will be given a grade as a whole. Every group member will get the same grade.
• The Dramatic Presentation will be graded on the choices of excerpts’ relation to the chosen theme. It will not be graded on your ability to memorize lines or give an award-worthy performance.
• The Class Presentation will be graded on your ability to explain why your dramatic choices were relevant. Remember: a written copy of your presentation must be submitted BEFORE your presentation. Your written presentation will not be graded on the quality of its writing – that is to say, grammar, spelling, and punctuation will not be considered in the grade – but on its ability to articulate its ideas clearly.
• The duration of your presentation is part of the grade. If your presentation is too short, this will be counted in your grade. If you presentation is too long, it might be cut off – a fact that will certainly impact your grade.
• You will not be graded on the question and answer portion of the presentation.
Notes:
• Try to make sure that every group member speaks in front of the class. Any student who doesn’t participate in the actual presentations risks losing participation grades on his or her Term Work.
• The Dramatic Presentation should be about 5 minutes, and the Class Presentation should be about 10 minutes. Budget your scene selection accordingly.
• You do not need to memorize lines, wear costumes, or find props. If you think that costumes or props will help you illustrate your assigned theme, then feel free to use them. But be aware that YOU DO NOT HAVE TO DO ANYTHING BUT READ YOUR CHOSEN SCENE(S).
Themes:
Choose ONE of the following themes for your presentation. Multiple groups may choose the same theme, and even perform the same scenes.
1. Genre – how does the play interrogate the concept of genre? How do characters engage with genre tropes, and to what end?How is the concept of genre important to the plot and the characters?How does this relate to the play’s title?
2. Identity – how does the play comment on the nature of identity? What is the relationship between Andrew and Milo? How do their various deceptions relate to the idea of the self? What is the importance of ancestry and class in the making of identity?
3. Morality – how does the play comment on morality and ethics?In what context? Is one character a more moral person than the other? What is the role of morality in the story?
4. A topic of your own devising. As with the essays, I must approve the topic before you present on it.
