This morning we talked about how to write a Task Analysis, an in-edpth description of how to complete a task. Unlike their first teaching, which will be to teach a major/minor and douple/triple song by rote using a specific sequence, today's tasks were to tie a shoe and to make a paper airplane. Both of these common tasks were a challange to write out in detail! By the end of the class planes flew around the classroom - well, at least 1/2 of them did. The other half weren't quite folded correctly due to some missing information in the the task analysis!
Today we are preparing for our first formal performance, which will occur on Wednesday, February 6th. We will serve as a demonstration group for a lecture I am giving to a Penn State International Arts course. This course typically consists of 60-100 people from a variety of majors across campus. Cultural information will be given, music will be demonstrated, and then the class membership will be asked to participate. It's great to see those engineering majors move and sing!
The performance will feature a Waiata, a demonstration of Titi Toria, a Waiata a Ringa, and a Haka.
