I really enjoyed our last project. I felt like it was a perfect way to end a difficult semester. I enjoyed working with my classmates because usually I usually work alone so this was a good switch up. I thought the concept of the project was quite repetitive because we had to do something similar for our final essay but I still enjoyed it. Every group that presented incorporated humor which made the class entertaining. I really enjoyed the group that incorporated the Avengers. I thought it was funny and the Avengers has been the focal point of many conversations recently so it made sense to make it apart of their skit. I also like the group that did a spin-off of “A story of an Hour”. I like how the main actor was portrayed as very overdramatic. When he realized he was single, it was very funny and demonstrated the short story well. Another group I enjoyed was the group that did the spinoff of “Y- the Last Man”. The group gave the class a live presentation of the scene when Hero came to get Yorick. I enjoyed this group’s presentation because I wrote my fanfiction essay on the same book. Although they chose a different scene, I still enjoyed their skit and the fake gun was a very creative prop. The gunshot sound effects were the cherry on top and made the whole class laugh.
I felt that our group did really good. At first, it might of been hard to tell what book or short story we based our skit off of but I think it started to make more sense afterward. We moved around the room a lot so I felt that we could have spoken up more but other than that, as a group we presented well. We took the opposite approach of “The Lesson” where a white wealthy man takes his son to a poor communities toy store. I think we also did a decent job at acting. We used actual toys which hopefully clarified what short story we were inspired by. I had to dress somewhat semi-formal to show that I was apart of the wealthier class. As a group and as a whole class, it was not prize-winning performances, but we all worked hard and hopefully, it paid off by boosting all of our grades.
