The Last Lecture - If I had made a list of my child hood dreams, I admit, it wouldn’t be very impressive. I never wanted to be a firefighter or a policeman. I never had the urge to be a millionaire, and I never even thought of being a G.I Joe or Army Man. If you could see my list, you would see only two words scribbled down in that chicken scratch hand writing of mine. But only one of those words would follow me out of that first grade class room and stick with me to this present day. By now, curiosity must be coursing through your veins, just to know what my child hood dream is....   [tags: Biography] 1065 words

Performance Lecture: Relationship with an Audience - ... The placards helped to conclude our presentation and emphasise key points whilst the video material appeared to be a strongly successful element through informing the audience with enough information about the practitioners in an engaging, humorous and memorable manner. This was often parodic, therefore linking back to the techniques of absurdist theatre. Linking back to the main topic our audience relationship, it was highly important that our own audience felt self-aware and were critical, not passive to what they observed, producing witnesses rather than spectators, as we found Tim Etchells wanted from his audiences....   [tags: theater styles, drama performance]

Lecture on Nothingness: John Cage - In Cage’s poem the use of no words is the language he develops, which includes the silence of blank spaces, sentence gaps or fragmentation, and the flow or continuity of the entire piece, is as critical as the use and placement of actual words. Together, in balance with each other (not with words in a more exalted position than no words), they form what he wishes to say in a manner similar to a musical composition. And what he wishes to say is there is nothing to say - there is no one phrase of words that sums up the poem’s significance....   [tags: Literature]

Guest Lecture Reflection - ... Rather, they would want a more extravagant lifestyle, then what a teachers salary entails. Attending college for four years and then only being paid a salary of approximately thirty thousand dollars is demoralizing. That is not that much over the poverty level and it takes quite a few years to raise an educator’s salary. If merit pay, or just an overall increase of salary is adopted into the education field, then it sounds rather enticing and hopefully would create a positive affect.

It’s horrifying how soldiers casually shoot everywhere, not really caring who or what they shoot at. After learning about the Old Testament, though, this makes sense to me. Since the people of Israel are Jewish, they don’t believe that the Messiah has come yet and must still live by the laws of the Old Testament, where God demanded they eliminate many people groups through “holy war.” Through this understanding, it makes sense that the Israelis don’t think twice about shooting even at Palestinian children....   [tags: Palestinian lecture reflection] 569 words
