Topic Title: 

Mock Component 3 – Responding to a Brief

Topic Intent:

This component asks students to draw on the knowledge and skills they have developed throughout the course and apply them in response to an assessment task brief. Component content overlaps across Components 1 and 2. Students will be able to apply the skills developed in Component 1, through exploration and analysis of professional works, to their own development of work. Structure, key features of the theatrical style and creative techniques of professional practitioners will inform their creativity. The development of acting skills covered within Component 2 will aid their understanding of the skills and techniques they will need to select and apply during the initial ideas stages, the rehearsal process and the final performance within this component. 

Students will mainly participate in collaborative creative work, developing their ability to work as a part of a group as well as individually contributing to the creation of a workshop performance. Evaluation activities through group discussion and feedback on performance work will aid the development of analysis and evaluative skills. Practice at taking notes after acting tasks will develop their note-taking skills and prepare them for the final supervised assessment.
