  7. 10. Internal stimulus – thoughts and emotions 11.Situation-centered approach – placement of different characters in a certain situation, focusing on their various reactions. 12. Terminal question – can be answered with a “yes” or “no,” thus hindering improvisational dialogue. Drama: Chapter 1 Vocabulary1/7/2014

  8. 13. Individual improvisation – improvisation that allows for depth in the development of single character. 14. Main response – last step in the motivated sequence in which you react vocally or physically. 15. Primary means of conveying character – voice, body language and movement 16. Motivation – the causes and reasons for a character’s behavior; the driving force behind the improvisations. Drama: Chapter 1 Vocabulary1/7/2014

  9. 17. Spontaneity – the naturalness needed to keep a production fresh. 18. Situation – the problems, challenges and circumstances a character must face. 19. External stimuli – things that are heard, seen, tasted, felt or smelled. 20. “illusion of the first time” – the impression given by a performance that has spontaneity and freshness.

  10. Think of your own experiences with learning. Pair up with a person nearby. The purpose of this “paired think-aloud” is to get to know each other better and to practice listening. One student should describe his/her learning experience. The other should record what the student says. The recorder should also ask questions necessary in order to write the other’s information correctly and encourage the speaker to explain what he/she means. Finally, pairs will switch roles and complete the exercise again.
