Puppetry was my favorite portion of the unit because I feel like I used a little bit of everything when making and performing with my puppet. I used vocal acting to give my puppet a voice, improv to come up with parts of a story on the fly, and comedy. Overall making the puppet was just really fun.
4/22/2022 09:54:56 am
My favorite unit was probably the duo scene because it made me laugh the most.
4/22/2022 09:55:53 am
My favorite part in this unit was probably the puppet making. I loved to assemble and put together a play with like toys we made out of clay and fabric. I enjoyed this part the most.
4/22/2022 09:56:31 am
I think the warm ups really helped us get ready for our performances. The improv was really fun to do! I enjoyed the duo scenes more than the single monologues. The musical theatre choreography was overall my favorite part of this whole unit! It was fun doing it as a class and not singles. Making the puppet and performing was fun because it let us be creative.
4/22/2022 09:56:42 am
My favorite part of this whole thing that got us up to the vlog was making the puppets and then seeing the outcome of it. Everyone's play was funny yet at the same time cute. I loved how we got to watch everyone's vlog and there were some hard parts which was creating and making a dialogue in that time cause our puppets were all different. However, it created something unique and fun which was what made it fun :) To be honest, I was really nervous performing with others with the puppets but they made it relieving since they made it interesting with humor. Glad that I got the chance to be paired with them.
4/22/2022 09:57:19 am
Warm ups and improv were not my personal favorite, I like to stay seated in the mornings. Vocal acting was nerve racking, but physical acting with my own group of my choice was nice. Comedy and tragedy were both fun, comedy was fun. I liked seeing what people came up with and learning about it. Dancing was fun , the dance we learned was complex but it was still interactive and fun. Making a puppet was hard work, I burned my fingers a few times and it was over all just very hard and I had to re-do my puppet two times. Acting with the puppets was fun.
4/22/2022 09:58:04 am
The thing that I enjoyed the most this unit was probably the puppet stuff. More specifically making the puppets because it made me be more creative and I also had all the materials that I needed so I could be creative to the fullest.
4/22/2022 09:58:24 am
4/22/2022 09:59:29 am
The warm ups were fun (In my opinion) but still useful to get active and wake up. Improv was fun constantly making your body and makes you think fast.Physical and vocal acting was my favorite being loud and expressing your emotions through a monologue is always my favorite to do. Comedy and tragedy was fun to do aswell with a partner funny stories and fun to act in.Musical theatre was fun and creative aswell as the others but didn't really think too much of. Puppets were fun to makes and making a story for your puppet was fun aswell creating a puppet and story.
4/22/2022 09:59:35 am
I think I loved all of the different acting things we did. My favorite thing we did was the Puppetry and Musical of Theater choreography. I liked making and creating a puppet character. It pushed my craft skills and creative level which is so fun. I liked dancing with the class and i think it was just a lot of fun and it was different for this class. Overall, I just loved this unit so much it was the best!
4/22/2022 10:00:57 am
I loved doing improv. I like going into scenes and being creative with the direction they go. Having to build off of what my partner or what other people do is very challenging, but fun. I liked this whole unit a lot.
4/22/2022 10:02:20 am
My favorite units were the improv and puppet units. Improv was definitely the most fun in my opinion, working with others in scenes and having to think of new things on the spot was really fun. Puppets was also great because now I have something new to put up in my room, something I put time and effort into creating.
4/22/2022 10:02:27 am
my favorite units were improve, duo scenes and musical theatre choreography because it involved me to work with others and got to more physical stuff and than just sitting down. they allowed me to express myself more but i think my favorite was choreography.
4/22/2022 10:47:14 am
I really liked the improv unit because there's never any fear forgetting lines, it just involves keeping the skit going until you can't anymore and that makes it more enjoyable for me to do. I also find it easier as its stress free with the no memorization part, I have trouble with acting because it feels too serious for me to take it seriously so improv is a nice change. The comedy monologue was a bit awkward but felt less stressful with a partner, I found out that I don't have issues physically acting its mainly dialogue that gets me. Though I liked the monologue because it was just a faceless recording. My favorite was definitely the puppets and looking back there's a lot of things I'd do differently with the sculpting and design process but for my first time making a puppet I liked it. I didn't like chirography because it just feels embarrisng and I have no rhythm.
4/22/2022 01:21:41 pm
I think my favorite part was the duo scenes. It was really fun to learn a script with another person. I enjoyed performing and practicing with a partner. The duo scenes were definitely my favorite part of the acting unit
4/22/2022 01:21:47 pm
The duo scene and the monologue were pretty cool, I like to rehearse and say the lines I feel like I also had more time to rehearse too.
4/22/2022 01:21:57 pm
I really liked all of the tasks that we did in this unit, but if I had to choose one then it would probably be the physical/vocal acting. Voice acting or acting in general is more of my style and that task let me practice on my tone. Furthermore, it helped with me emphasizing the words in my monologues to really sell my emotions and how my character is feeling.
4/22/2022 01:22:10 pm
I didn't enjoy the warmups a ton because i felt a little bored. I enjoyed the monologues, because it was a fun way to explor my personal interests and get out of my comfort one. I also enjoyed the duo scenes, i think i enjoyed them a bit more than the monologues because i like the interaction. I thought the idea of dancing was cool but i didn't like the choreography a ton. Overall this was fun, even though there were some, interesting to say the least, activities.
4/22/2022 01:22:20 pm
My favorite part of this unit was improv because it allowed me to be more creative with my actions and thoughts and let me be more expressive with my actions than I usually am in person. I also enjoyed the vocal warm-ups because it was really fun to learn and do the warm-ups since I like to sing in my free time.
4/22/2022 01:22:42 pm
I really liked this! I liked practicing lines, and especially making the puppets, I had to rush since I was gone most of the time, but it was super fun.
4/22/2022 01:22:42 pm
Creating the puppet was my favorite part of this unit. It was fun to be creative a create a specific character. I liked working with my friends and having fun creating Harry Styles. Through creating the face, the clothes, the hair, and the actual performance, I learned a lot and it was very inspiring. The clay was the most difficult part of this project, but it was very fun.
4/22/2022 01:23:39 pm
I liked the puppet making and even the preforming. The process was long . The duo scene was fun but also long. Overall i liked the puppets and duo scene most.
4/22/2022 01:23:55 pm
I really liked the puppetry even though i was only here for a little bit but it was still really fun. It wasn't super nerve wracking to preform because we couldn't see the audience. The monologue and duo scene were okay but not sure fun. I think i liked the puppetry too because we got to build them and create them so that was fun.
4/22/2022 01:24:40 pm
Puppetry and the physical and vocal acting units were my favorite. Not only did I have fun, but I found that I'm more creative than I thought I was. The warm ups were fun and helpful, especially before the puppets performance. This entire learning unit was so so fun!
4/22/2022 01:25:42 pm
I really liked doing the improv because I think that playing all of those games that we played and it was fun to come up with weird stories on the spot with everyone else.
4/22/2022 01:25:50 pm
Out of all the vlogs, my favorite one to perform was the duo scene. It was a really fun experience. and allowed myself to be very creative. Not only that, when I was performing it didn't feel like me putting on act. It's almost like I was actually the character in the play.
4/22/2022 01:25:57 pm
i really enjoyed the warm ups and improve, i sorra thought they were silly. I was nervous at first for the physical and voice acting, but in the end i think i got it. I liked the duo scene because our scripts were written already. Dancing isn't my thing. puppetry was definitely my favorite of all of em
4/22/2022 01:26:09 pm
first time doing a theater class it was personally fun, I really liked doing all of the fun arts and crafts. Getting to do different units learning the background of theater. I liked doing improv unit more because it makes me more comfortable even though I do dance a lot I still liked to learn different things to get me out my comfort zone and I think this class help me.
4/22/2022 01:26:19 pm
My favorite part of the acting duo would have to be the scene where Hans is trying to cover up the fact that he had the smurfs the whole time, and before Gargamel could use one of his spells, Hans quickly knocks him out with one punch, Hans now freaking out that he thought he killed him he hides the body so that no one finds him and who knocked him out.
4/22/2022 01:26:24 pm
The acting unit was my favorite unit so far. I loved the duo scenes and the puppet making-performing. The duo scene was fun because I kind of make the charcater my own and put emotion behind it. Also I enjoyed having a partner.
4/22/2022 02:10:10 pm
I am choosing the puppets for my favorite portion of the unit. At the beggening it was hard to make the head and use the clay, but it progresssiviely got easier as it started to come together. In the end I loved how it came together and ended up looking how I wanted it to
4/22/2022 03:18:13 pm
Theatre all together is a nice class, it is fun in some aspects and caught my attention but that may not be the case for everyone. One thing that I liked was puppetry, it was pretty fun and the limitatations were practially non existent. It was fun to see everyones puppets and especially the little puppet shows, I liked all of them. It was overall nice to see how creative people are in different ways including myself. Although im rather plain its still fun.
4/22/2022 10:36:08 pm
My favorite portion of the unit has been musical theatre and warm ups. Dancing and bringing a song to life is so fun to do together with everyone. The warm ups are a great way to start my day and focus me in for the work we are about to do.
4/23/2022 09:13:28 pm
All of the parts in this unit were very enjoyable for me but my favorite part was the puppetry and acting with my friends. At first the thought of making puppets and performing a puppet show was scary and I didn't think I could do it in such short time. But by the end of the two weeks I did it. The puppet didn't come out perfect but I was still happy with my work and the show was good and fun to do.
4/24/2022 04:46:37 pm
1. The warm-ups were ok and all the improvs were ok as well.
4/25/2022 11:51:01 am
My favorite portion was the tragedy duo scenes, I enjoyed working with others, and I improved my social skills.
4/26/2022 09:27:22 am
I enjoyed the puppet scene the most. It was really fun and interesting to create. The actual puppet performance was fun too and I liked how we did it with a partner because there were more options o make in the scene since there was another voice, it also just wasn't as scary with a partner.
4/27/2022 10:55:18 am
The actual puppet performance was fun too and I liked how we did it with a partner because there were more options o make in the scene since there was another voice. My favorite portion was the tragedy duo scenes
4/28/2022 06:57:24 pm
I didn't not do it
5/6/2022 08:52:05 am
My favorite thing in this unit was making a puppet. This was my favorite thing because it was fun creating a puppet and painting it. I never made a puppet before so it was really interesting.
5/10/2022 09:57:36 am
Puppetry was my favorite section of this unit. We got to, hypothetically, create our own avatars with free reign. Of course, I decided to make a Harry Styles puppet and found out I wasn't the only one doing so too. Along the way I made new friends, specifically Sammie and Natalie. They both happen to be Harry fans and we were able to bond throughout the entire unit create our Harry puppets from different eras. I also really enjoyed the improv section of the unit. It felt like a time for everyone to be silly and have fun, but also grow as actors. This unit has probably been my favorite so far. It was the most hands on and I work best under these circumstances.
4/24/2023 09:59:11 am
Doing improv was very fun for me, being able to make up stories on the spot based off the different situations we were put into. I also enjoyed puppet making a lot, but I wish that there was a little bit more time to work on the puppets themselves. Other then that, the whole unit was fun in my opinion because it touched on all the aspects of theatre, being musicals, puppetry, and acting.
4/24/2023 09:59:22 am
I loved the musical theatre choreography because of the ending and how good it turned out in the end. with the lights, staging, and the extra parts here and there. And it was super fun from begging to end.
4/24/2023 10:00:15 am
i learned how to work with others. i also learned how to make puppets.it was really hard to do. i had burned my finger. the puppet play we did was all about fighting. warm-ups weren't that bad. i still think mine looks evil.
4/24/2023 10:00:21 am
This unit was really fun! I enjoyed making a puppet even though it didn't turn out the way I wanted it to, it was still fun to make. I enjoyed challenging myself and doing things that I thought were too hard to do. I enjoyed the dancing part of this unit too. It was fun when we put the dance all together.
4/24/2023 10:00:34 am
I feel like puppetry was fun. It was something new for me and i liked it, I would absolutely do it again. this unit has been my favorite so far because we do more hands on work and get comfortable with everybody in the classroom. It was just a great experience.
4/24/2023 10:00:51 am
This was a fun thing to do and how we could do it with other people. I like this and it was very cool.
4/24/2023 10:00:51 am
I've defiantly learned a lot about puppetry and costume design. I learned a lot about how to put characters together and scripts.
4/24/2023 10:00:56 am
unit 3 was really fun with the puppet making. We got to be free with the design choices and it had its struggles but putting together and acting out the play. It was really fun and refreshing to be free with our design.
4/24/2023 10:01:07 am
My favorite part of this unit was making puppets. I really enjoyed this part because It involved art and I got to make my own character. The process had a lot more to it than we usually think and I loved how I learned a new technique.
4/24/2023 10:01:23 am
The puppet play was fun and build the puppet was fun too and hard.
4/24/2023 10:01:29 am
This was a fun unit because I like making the puppet but it was kind if difficult making it and coming up with what your making but this was a fun unit.
4/24/2023 10:01:29 am
This whole little acting unit was kind of fun just a little bit. Because we got to create things and present them to people, even though we took a lot of time doing these projects we got time to open our creative side.
4/24/2023 10:01:41 am
i think my favorite unit was the puppetry because it made me laugh the most and it was kinda fun making the puppets its self.
4/24/2023 10:01:52 am
My favorite part was probably the puppets. The play itself was cool, but I really liked making them. It was fun because there were so many different parts and we got to do whatever we wanted with it. I think I "grew" because of how it was difficult to make a puppet for the first time.
4/24/2023 10:02:05 am
I really enjoyed the improve and puppet unit. The improve was fun while also helping me step out of my shell. At first I dreaded this whole unit because I would have to talk/act in front of people. But as more days passed I saw that it looked really fun and I decided to give it a shot. I ended up really enjoying it and helped me with talking to new people/ in front of people. I also LOVED the puppet unit. I got to express my creativity through crafts. I love making little characters and making one in real like was so fun and made me really happy.
4/24/2023 10:02:29 am
Puppetry was honestly the hardest for me because we only had one week to complete it and it was really stressful. But it was really fun to make the story especially when they had no connection with each other irl. It was just a combination of fun, stress, nervous, worried and excitement. This unit was fun though and I really liked it.
4/24/2023 10:02:47 am
i really enjoyed the puppetry part of the unit, i liked making the pupet and creating a story for it.
4/24/2023 10:03:36 am
I think the warm-up and improv may have been my favorite, or more so the improv part, I usually really like doing improv since I think it's quite a lot of fun, and so that part Unit was also a lot of fun, I would write more about it, like why I think it's fun, but there's not a whole lot of time, but yeah.
4/24/2023 10:04:06 am
My favorite units were the improv and the puppetry. I think its really fun being able to make up the situation right on the spot while puppetry shows a lot of physical art creativity which another thing I also like while being able to control the puppet and tells your story, the script was cut off because we didn't have enough time but we made it work by making it up on the spot.
4/24/2023 11:30:03 am
my favorite unit was puppetry because it was fun making the puppets and talking with my group about the puppets. There was also a loto free time which i liked
4/24/2023 11:30:09 am
i liked the warmups and the improv games. the duo scenes were ok. i dont like music. and i enjoyed making the puppets
4/24/2023 11:30:15 am
i liked the most of this unit was the improve it tough me how to improve and it was fun. i also had fun building puppets and i had a good time
4/24/2023 11:30:39 am
it was a very interesting experience
4/24/2023 11:31:38 am
My favorite thing we've done so far is the duo scene and the puppet play, reason being that I like making people laugh. I thought it was really dumb to do something like this but these kinds of activities are making me more open as a person. Using a bit of Korean language in the puppet play was cool, eve though most people don't understand Korean. Overall enjoyable experience.
4/24/2023 11:31:49 am
My favorite part of the unit was making the puppets. I liked it since it was fun thinking of what to make and then making it.
4/24/2023 11:32:07 am
I enjoyed the acting unit as a whole. The improv was definitely my favorite however.
4/24/2023 11:32:38 am
My favorite part of the unit was the puppet making even though I didnt finish mine. It was really fun to do.
Alex Ticse :)
4/24/2023 11:32:46 am
It was fun doing acting and all of those things. My most favorite thing to do was definitely the puppet making AND performing. Most fun unit through out this semester.
4/24/2023 11:32:57 am
Out of all of things, That we have done I love creating the puppets but I really wish I could act but I couldn't because my partner wasn't here so I wish I could done the acting on Time but honestly I had fun during unit beside the huge setback, I had fun!
4/24/2023 11:33:11 am
I liked improve the most and making the puppets. I learned how to act on the spot and I got a lot better at it then at the begining of the unit. I feel like I am not as nervous to perform in front of people as I used to be. and I also learned how to make puppets and that I was good at it. overall I had a lot of fun and am looking forward to next years theatre class.
4/24/2023 11:33:23 am
I really loved the improv unit. It was so much fun. All if the games were super fun to watch and join in. I also really liked the puppet unit. It was fun bringing my character to life in the creating and preforming process. I also enjoyed the comedy/tragedy scene it was fun to be able to act out the scene. Overall the acting unit was my favorite out of all the units. I had a great time.
4/24/2023 11:33:28 am
my favorite units were pupperty because i got to explore lots of ideas on making something of my own. and also being able to create its own character and ideas it was fun practicing for the play
4/24/2023 11:33:55 am
The puppet making was probably the hardest because there was a lot to do, but also my favorite because I love being creative and just making things. It allows everyone to do something different and project themselves into some cloth and fabric. The improving was very fun to do as well because it is another opportunity to let yourself loose and just have fun. It is really interesting what comes out when you just allow yourself to have fun and I think this entire unite really showed that. The improve unit really showed that by saying yes to something you making something into a new something that is really really cool. This was a lot of fun to do and it has taught me a lot about theater and life as well.
4/24/2023 11:34:18 am
My favorite part of the unit was the puppetry part. It was really challenging to create a puppet in a week but it was also very fun. I worked on my time management and rehearsal skills and felt much more confident while performing. I believe that if I had more time my puppet would have looked more finished but overall I like how it turned out. I would have like to spend more time in the puppetry section of the unit, but I'm glad I got to work on it for any time at all. This section of the unit made me work harder and lead to me being more confident in my work.
4/24/2023 11:34:27 am
This unit was a more hands on unit because we had to create our own pupped. We had the required resources to make it possible for each other to build an individual pupped. The performance was a fun experience which I liked.
4/24/2023 11:34:28 am
my favorite part was making the puppets even tho I wasn't able to finish it I liked the new experience.
4/24/2023 11:35:48 am
I really liked improv part of the unit. It was really fun to come up with new ideas and say he first thing on my mind, without mistakes. The physical and vocal parts were also really fun, testing my own ability to preform without others, but I also liked the duo scenes, and being able to play with characters. I wasn't here for most of the choreography, but I found it really enjoyable and fun to watch. The puppet was also really fun and challenging to create and figure how to make an outfit. I liked all the performances and have had a lot of fun.
4/24/2023 11:36:17 am
Every single task in the unit that we were given allowed me to learn something new in a different field.
4/24/2023 11:36:55 am
The drama duo scenes were exciting. However, my favorite unit was puppet making. I thoroughly enjoyed the days dedicated to crafting my own puppet. The unlimited supplies made creating my design so much easier. The performing aspect of the puppet unit was a bit rocky. I had never performed with puppets and the script wasn't memorized so obviously the performance wasn't perfect. Ignoring this little rough patch, I thought the puppet unit was interesting.
4/24/2023 11:37:24 am
I have to say it was very cool to do acting. You know like write scripts do the performances, act out characters, make a story about my character, I grew confident from like doing a part on a character, rehearsing my lines, practicing my sentences on what character I play, the types of acting like stage acting or being actors. I liked the warm ups, stretching our bodies, doing improv, Other exercises I like were doing choreography dances, Some fun parts were monologues, writing them, performing them, Comedy is cool you know like doing comedy like dr know it all, Making puppets was interesting it was hard at first but over time I started to enjoy it.
4/24/2023 11:38:14 am
I enjoyed all the units so far they all taught me something. My favorite unit might be the puppet unit mainly because I had fun doing the play.
4/24/2023 11:41:31 am
warm ups and improv was fun to do especially the encanto ones cause they had themes to it. Monologues were fun cause we got to create our own stories and du scenes were fun cause we got to do it with someone and acting is fun.The Aladdin dance choreography was very fun to do because i love dancing and lastly it was fun to do puppetry since it was very hands on .
4/27/2023 08:54:39 am
My favorite part of this unit was improv because it allowed me to be more creative with my actions and thoughts and let me be more expressive with my actions than I usually am in person.
4/28/2023 02:18:25 pm
I really enjoyed this unit. I thought the games were a little intimidating at first, but when we got into it I looked forward to going to class!!
5/3/2023 10:32:57 am
I enjoyed puppet making it was a lot of fun. At first it was difficult but after painting and clothing it got a lot better. I loved dancing to the Arabian Nights it was soo much fun. Again hard at first but a lot of fun at the end. And I really enjoyed this term.
5/19/2023 12:31:16 pm
This was a really fun unit, and I especially liked the improv games that we did. The puppet making was really fun and I really like it when we craft in the class. The Duo scene was also something that was really fun that we did. I wish we had more options though. To be honest, the warm ups were really strange but in the end they were pretty fun.
