EdTA Teacher Tool 3: 8th Grade MCA--Pantomime

This teacher tool provides a Theatre Model Cornerstone Assessment for Grade 8 for the artistic processes of Creating, Performing, Responding, and Connecting.

Students will create, rehearse, revise, and present a short pantomime in the form of a story with a beginning, conflict, and ending resolution that expresses meaning, emotion, and character. This pantomime will be done in small groups around a theme that involves solving a community issue (e.g. need for a new park, clean ground water, healthier cafeteria food). Proficiency will be demonstrated through the use of facial expression, gesture, full body movement (stage picture), movement in space (blocking), and cessation of movement (tableau). Although done in small groups, the assessment should be done individually.
