PROJECT: MAKING UP A SOAP OPERA

In this project the class has to make up a soap opera. You will create three teams to make up the three scenes in the soap opera. Read the instructions and goo ahead.

Team 1. Scene 1


In this activity you and your classmates are going to create a profile for a group of people and imagine their relationships to each other. Then you will construct a soap opera based around the characters and write a scene from the soap opera.

  • Look at the set of pictures above
  • Imagine who the people are and what they are like. (e.g. Name, age, occupation, habits, hobbies, character etc)
  • What is a soap opera about ?. Try to think about some examples of ones that you watch.
  • What have most soap operas in common? (e.g. heroes, heroines, villains, drama – usually based around some kind of setting / workplace, etc.)
  • All of the pictures you can see are characters from the same soap opera.What are the relationships between the people? and what role has each of them within the soap opera?. what kind of setting does the soap opera take place in? (e.g. in an office, on a ranch, in a hotel etc.)
  • You should write a short scene ( scene 1) involving as many of their characters as possible. Remember that this is the fisrt scene of the soap opera
  • All the members of the team can choose characters and act out the scene from the soap opera.
  • Then we will put all the scenes together and we will record it.
  • If it is possible, we will try to join all the scenes ( some changes will have to be made) and build an episode of our soap opera.
