Room 4 Circus 2009

WOW, so sad Wikispaces is closing, but so delighted to find these treasures. Way, way back in 2009, our whole class was fully blended - working both face to face and online. Perhaps the best example of this was when we fully lived the circus dream, from planning, to auditioning, to acting out and reflecting on our performance. 
So glad I got the chance to copy this out.
Just the other day I ran into one of these amazing clowns and we shared many a fond memory about our learning journey together...  VERY special....

Click on this link to check out what you can do for our circus. Add your name to any of the acts you can do. Remember to think about your talents and choose what you would really like to do.

I am extremely impressed with the effort you have put into preparation for our circus.
We now need to make sure we all have acts we are working on in groups.
There is no I in team!!!
We need to research clowns and acts to make sure we fully understand our role.
When will you practise?
What props will you need?

What do we need in our rubric?
Who will be ringmaster?
Who will be prompt? director?
Who will write the programme?
Who will make the poster to advertise our circus?

How will we plan for our Parish Buddy circus?
