Not entirely sure what I have to do for the dramatic aims and intentions of component 2. We've been given barely any help and I can't find anything of use on the AQA website. Has anyone already done it and have a good outline or something like that?

it seems most drama students have said similar things. my teacher is the same. i have no idea what to write. i see that you wrote this in March. does that mean you have already done your GCSEs? if so, how did it go, and did you ever learn how to write dramatic aims and intentions? have you got any advice for me?

(ie: Grimm’s Fairy tale in the style of Steven Berkoff) 2.Identify your stimulus and a bit about your practitioner3.Identify what themes have come up because of these sources 4.Identify what ideas have come from this sources (ie: use of physical theatre to create a bird, etc…). Justify in terms of style (Total Theatre and Berkoff)5.Identify possible settings6.Identify research into these themes, settings and ideas… this can be some of the stuff you did in the workshops but you should also include further research into Berkoff, getting the action points of your story, ideas and settings that you are going to explore. 7.Identify what your dramatic aims and intentions are for scenes. What do you want your audience to think/feel/understand?8.Identify what your dramatic aims and intentions for the piece as a whole are. 9.Use specific terminology! (ie: direct address, states of tension, exaggeration, stylistic, Alienation, 4ps and 1 t etc…This is what my drama teacher sent us and it really helped to get an initial idea of what to write about
