-THERE IS NEVER ARIGHT WAY AND A WRONG WAY. IMPROV. MANY TEAMS DO NOT MAKE AN EFFORT TO PEFORM AN INTERESTING AND COMPLETE PRESENTATION. They learned to set goals. Here are some of the things they have learned over time and that I remind them of every practice: 1. Anyway I thought, "if anyone does that, it will be great". When a Team gets a "With Props" Presentation-Based IC, they need to allocate their time between idea generation and prop/costume generation. To Move Challenges respond well to both SCAMPER and Properties of Materials CPS Tools. A Team can be given a list of props, but be asked to just imagine that they are there. They learned to anticipate each other, to depend on each other and to trust each other. To emphasize that, I started by using a “launching” hands-on type, multi-part instant challenge (where the team had to develop launchers and launched items and then launch them for accuracy). The difference between team managers and appraisers, however, is that appraisers don't know this about the team and the teamwork has to be demonstrated for them to score it. On the topic of IC training… My team and the other teams from my school are trying to convince our team manager to "write the book" on IC training. And team managers who know this about their team will probably then be confused by the teamwork scores. My goal is for the team to appreciate (and celebrate) the things they did well in solving the challenge, but also to learn those areas where there was room for improvement. It came in hand… especially for some of the newer IC Appraisers. How fair of an average do you receive, especially with only three appraisers. Know where the points are and direct your solution to gaining points. How might we use SCAMPER to best utilize the Materials? When you build a bridge out of marshmallows and toothpicks, is it better to use rectangles or triangles? Items that attach things together - e.g. De-mystifying Instant Challenge - and providing some hints on how teams can be successful there. Web. Time can be kept. And it eliminates the person who hogs all the supplies. 0000041619 00000 n I agree that it is important for the appraisers to have some idea of how the team works together during its planning. 0000001532 00000 n Your challenge is for your team to reenact that story creatively. Focused attention is important. Determining the Focus of the Challenge This should ALWAYS be Step 1. Example:  a non-verbal presentation and  they speak,  touching something they are not allowed to touch, or going outside of a perimeter given. A good example would be a telephone. They can make up little mini Challenges asking them to communicate different sets of information.
