The 5 emotions

Debate topic: Is teaching DISGUST to G2 through drama appropriate?
Yes

Learning negetive feelings, including but not limited to disgust, is also a process of learning.

No

Young kids do not necessarily have to learn disgust. They are unlikely to learn something valuable through realizing what it is like to feel disgusting.

I was assigned to act disgust at first, but there had been a educational debate on teaching disgusting feeling to young children. I do think every feeling is of importance when it comes to expressing oneself, therefore, I believe teaching disgusting feelings wouldn’t matter. However, for the sake of better teaching quality, I am more inclined to the idea of teaching feeling that is more explicit than disgust. As a consequence, my role was altered to Jealousy with pomposity and self-pride. This change made all of 5 emotions distinguishable from one another.

Sad appears on stage first, which amplifies its sadness. This makes her more forlorn.

Next appears anger, fear and jealousy respectively. We arranged an order in this way because if anger and jealousy enter the stage in a consecutive order, the young audience might feel perplexed at figuring out the distinction between the two.

There’s a problem arisen regarding a focal point. If all the characters roam freely around within the boundary, the audience loses their focus. Hence, we need to consider how to give a focal point to each emotion in this scene.

Observation on Kids_ How they behave and Why

To understand our future audience, I’ve decided to observe them during lunchtime. As junior students and senior students often stumble upon around the bridge that leads to cafe, I had opportunities to observe them.

From what I observed children during lunchtime,

Kids In A Nutshell

  • Like to fabricate a fairy tale and tell to their peers.
    • Infinite Imagination!
  • If one child starts to run, other kids behind the child start to chase her/him.
    • Strongly connected to each other
    • Bandwagon Effect
  • Like to hold each other’s hand
    • Physical affectation
  • I also saw one junior class going to the cafe, playing granny’s footstep with their teacher.
