How did your use of the explorative strategies deepen your understanding of who was affected by and who was to blame for the Columbine Massacre?
For our first unit one drama exam we started to look at a topic to do with Columbine. Not knowing what our stimuli was going to be at first I was curious to see what was going to take place for the next couple of weeks. We began with a Double Period of Drama where our teacher’s had laid out four artefacts and each of the artefacts had different Drama Mediums in them to do with our topic. Every artefact we came across exposed us to a new character and each character had a specific set of items that helped to tell a story of who they were.
