Hollywood Clapboard

Type of Activity: Processing, Improv

Concepts: Here are four techniques for using a standard movie scene clapboard to review scenes from your most recent adventure-based learning activity.

Props Needed: A movie scene clapboard, or some participant imagination.

Process: Lights, Camera, Action!  Scene One, Take One.

We all have favorite scenes from Hollywood movies.  Here is an opportunity for a group to review their favorite scenes from their adventure experience.

Method I - As a reviewing technique, the facilitator can recreate the scene of the most recent activity, and replay it exactly as it happened.  Next, the group can *reshoot* the scene, and alter the outcome as desired.

Method II - At the completion of the activity, the clapboard is passed around the group, and each member has the opportunity to share a scene with the group.

Method III - At the completion of the program, the clapboard is passed around the group, and each member has the opportunity to share their favorite scene of the day with the group, or, to show a future scene where they will use the skills they have learned today in a situation at home, at work, at school, or in their life.

Method IV - As an intervention tool, stop the activity and ask the group to think about how they would like the 'scene' to play out.  Pass the clapboard around the group and each person can give their 'take' on how they think the activity would work.
