Teach-Me Project: How to Make Chocolate Chip Cookies
Baking is something that brings me to a sense of peace, so I thought “Why not do this for the Teach Me project?” The objective of this assignment was just as it sounds: “Teach me.” I had to create a video showing someone else a skill I had acquired. These cookies were my grandmother’s recipe and it was the first thing I learned how to bake at a young age. We would always make these together around the holidays. I am extremely proud of this video because I filmed and edited it myself – both skills I learned outside of TNS. The main thing I learned from here, however, was the process. You really have to go through each step when you are teaching someone another skill, and filming does add an extra 45 minutes to your routine! I hope you all enjoy this video as much as I enjoyed making it.
Drama Monologue: “Untitled” written by Simone Fernadez, performed by Brooklyn Williams
This project was enjoyable for me personally. Acting is something that I liked but never tapped into, so this monologue really boosting my confidence. For this project, the drama ensemble wrote individual monologues and either recited their own or had the choice of reciting someone else’s. I decided to perform the piece written by freshman and fellow ensemble member, Simone Fernandez. Throughout the process, I learned about controlling my breath while performing, method acting, and how to add emotion rather than just reading the script. The character is nothing like me which allowed for there to be some emotional recall in my showing of this piece. This was so much fun to perform for my drama class.
