      • Break down a DIFFERENT fear experience using the elements that we discussed in today's case studies:
        • What were you actually afraid of?
        • On a scale of DISQUIET to ALARM, rate your fear level beforehand.
        • What physical fear reactions did you experience?
        • Did you realize that these physical fear reactions were normal?
        • Did you stay and deal with the situation or run from it?
        • Did any previous experience help you get through the fear? If so, what was it?
        • How would your perspective of this fear situation be different now that we've examined fear?
  • Personal Fear Inventory Results
    • Class Totals
  • Case Study Presentation
    • Each class will present 1 case study tomorrow worth 15 points:
      • Creativity--Use props, sound effects, and/or signs to enhance your presentation. Acting should also make the presentation more interesting. (5 Points)
      • True to the Story--Assign as many parts as you can to people. They can be props too. Use signs to make it clear what/who they are. Although you may embellish and enhance your story, the storyline must still remain true to the original case study. (5 Points)
      • Narration/Acting--The narrator should clearly read the case study, stopping when it's appropriate to allow acting. Use energy and feeling when reading the case study. Actors should be true to the character and really make each character stand out.
