Bard in the Classroom Reflections



(My group reenacting a tragic scene that we were given)

The Bard on the Beach presentation was a very enjoyable interactive activity to be involved with

Every time we would start the activity we would do this warm up that got everybody pumped and waken up and we would be introduced a new activity every day that got everyone excited

The presentation taught me a lot about Shakespeare and the genres of plays he wrote, I especially learned a lot about his well known play “Much Ado About Nothing”

The presentation got everyone involved with enjoyable and fun activities, my favorite activity was the tableau, we were put in groups and we had to make poses of what the scene would look like some poses that we got were challenging but it was fun having everyone’s creative idea of what the scene would look like

Shakespeare wrote four genres of plays during his time. The first one he wrote is history which was a play that was based on real events that occurred during his time, most likely in England. The second genre is comedy, a basic play that involves humorous jokes, some plays contain romance. Romance plays contained super natural or fantasy types. And the last type of genre is tragedy, plays that would contain a lot of yelling and screaming, the characters would usually die at the end or near the end of the play

Non-Fiction Advertising Analysis

This is a Coca Cola ad released in the year 2013 for people in Nigeria.
A new bottle of Coca Cola is being advertised here showing that the newly released bottles have “friend” and “family” labeled on them. This can give the thought to other people that there are probably more bottles in stores that are labeled other things rather than just “friend” and “family”.
This ad is for people enjoy the taste of coke and who also enjoys spending time with family or friends rather than just drinking it by themselves. This isn’t meant for people who are in a certain age group
This ad is very eye catching because the background on this ad is showing families holding a can or a bottle of Coca Cola and having a wonderful time with each other, the color of the ad is red and white which are bright colors and its also the colours of the Coca Cola. The slogan is written with the classic Coca Cola font saying “share a coke with…”

The Coca Cola ad contains Pathos and Logos, people are supposed to enjoy the cola with a positive feeling and it should be enjoyed with another individual, and the Coca Cola logo is displayed on the two bottles of cola in the middle and its also displayed on the top right corner in the shape of the Coca Cola bottle caps.

Persuasive techniques such as Transfer and Plain folks are demonstrated in this ad, Coca Cola should be enjoyed with a friend or family with a happy, joyful feeling. This ad isn’t saying it should be enjoyed by a certain class of people but the regular people around the world.
