Hi all,

Can anyone please help me (give me ideas) as I need some information for my IS. The subject of my IS is THAI TEXTBOOK ON “KHON†FOR TEACHING THAI CULTURE TO YEAR 6 STUDENTS. (so what is ‘Khon’? ? : Khon' is a Thai Traditional Dance with Masks). - - - link to Khon (in case you cannot picture it:

http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=khon&oq=khon&gs_l=youtube.3...218.741.0.978.4.4.0.0.0.0.0.0..0.0...0.0...1ac.1.)

As you are a foreigner or Thai (but know nothing about Khon) ... What would you like to know more about it?

As the textbook is divided into 5 lessons

Lesson 1: The history of Khon (roughly)

Lesson 2: Costume

Lesson 3: Masks (Giant , Monkey)

Lesson 4: Characters (Totsakan, Hanuman, Rama and Srida)

Lesson 5: The dance language use in Khon.

The question is I would like to know what you thinking about the lesson 1 (what would you like to know?)

** Can you also pretend to be year 6 student ^_^’

Thanks in advance kha ^_/\_^

where and when Khon it is preformed (because after the 5 lessons - I will want to experience it) --- schedule the class to see a performance as one of the lessons ---> then discuss

When DANNO posts, I typically paste it into translate.google.com/DANNO and it helps me figure out what he's trying to say.

After putting all info together, my guess is that he believes you should take the class to see a live performance and then discuss it with them after the show.

Although Rob is displaying another bout of PMS...

he is basically correct... If a performance is easy for your class to attend it would add much to your follow-up discussions ...and the performance itself a treat!

thanks all :)

I am planning to teach them about what is 'Khon'? and also about the character like ... there are 4 main characters which are ... Giant , Monkey , Actor (phra-ram) and Actress (Sii-da) .. and the next lesson they will learn about the Mask .. like which one is Giant or which one is monkey .. next lesson will be about the gestures of the dance ... after all ... I will show them an episode of Khon ... ...to make sure they can apply what they learn in watching khon ......... all my students will have to study this as a culture class (it's already in the Thai curriculum). But I am not so sure what to put in my lesson... just want to make sure it's not too much for them.

Just make sure you have more than you think you need. There's nothing worse than a class that understands everything quickly, and you're left with 30 minutes and nothing to do...
