Day 2: November 22, 2011

  1. Stroke quiz- using surveymonkey please create a ten question quiz about strokes using the information you gathered on Monday.  Place the link on your blog and get at least 10 people to take your quiz.  You should also take ten people’s quiz.
  2. Come up with a sketch for what your 60 second vignette will incorporate.  Please be specific.  By the end of the hour you should have the following things typed up on a sheet of paper:
  • script: who says what
  • characters: who plays what role- you may consider getting an older family member to play the part of the “person who is having the stroke.”
  • Setting: where will the scene take place some people may desire to tape this at home because you will have a home setting and access to an grandparent 🙂
  • props: what will you need to create your vingette?  If you are not going to use an actual elderly person you will need to dress up like the elderly person to play the part.
