00:0-1 Kids Educational Games Hello and welcome to the course on
00:05 writing , poem , drama and pros . I'm Steven's
00:09 mom , and we're playing a game to understand three
00:12 forms of writing poem , drama and prose . Today
00:18 I'll tell you how to properly use grammar in sentences
00:21 . By the end of this course , you will
00:23 be able to define Poem and its structural elements .
00:27 Defined drama and its structural elements define pros and its
00:32 structural elements identify the major differences between the three forms
00:36 of writing , poem , drama and prose . The
00:39 course is divided into three sections . After each section
00:43 , you'll be required to complete an activity rhyme and
00:46 poem concepts in drama Constructing pros . Mom , I'm
00:56 confused about the difference between a poem and other writing
01:00 . Why is one so small with such short sentences
01:03 , while the others air so long ? My teacher
01:06 asked me to write a poem for a school assignment
01:09 . How could I do it ? You are absolutely
01:12 right , son . However , there are many more
01:15 differences between the various forms of text . Let's start
01:18 with a poem and understand it in detail . If
01:23 you keep on going and never stop , you can
01:26 keep on going . You can make it to the
01:28 top . Life is full of mountains , Some are
01:32 big and some are small . But if you don't
01:34 give up , you can overcome them all . So
01:38 keep on going . Try not to stop . When
01:41 you keep on going , you can make it to
01:43 the top . Wow , Mom , Was that a
01:47 poem ? I wanna learn how to write a poem
01:50 just like that one . Yes , son , that
01:53 was a poem . I'll show you how to write
01:55 a poem . The first element of a poem is
01:59 rhyme . Poems have words that sound similar and appear
02:03 a the end of the line . The rhymes may
02:05 come in lines one after the other or in alternate
02:09 lines . Now let's look at another important element of
02:13 a poem . The stanza Ah , stanza is a
02:17 collection of lines that have a pattern and a rhyme
02:20 . This poem has three stanzas and is highlighted in
02:24 three different colors . Mom , if I write a
02:28 poem with these two elements , will my teacher be
02:31 happy with my assignment ? Of course , son .
02:34 But there is one more important element of a poem
02:37 that you must learn about . Let's look at that
02:39 now . Making comparisons . Making comparisons is achieved by
02:43 using symbols in the poem Don't give up . Life
02:48 is full of mountains means that in our lives we
02:51 may have to face many problems and obstacles . It
02:54 doesn't mean riel mountains . Also , if we keep
02:58 working hard and face the obstacles , we will achieve
03:01 our goal . Just like reaching a mountaintop . Isn't
03:05 that right , son ? Yes , Mom . Even
03:08 if I happen to face problems , I will work
03:11 to achieve my goals . Right now , I'll work
03:14 hard to write a poem on my own . Let's
03:17 complete an exercise to check your understanding of a poem
03:21 . Drag the leaves to the matching basket . Stop
03:26 Small run , Brad . Uh huh . Dad .
03:31 Fine again . Uh huh . That stop job small
03:50 . Ah , fun ! Run that rat again ,
04:01 hen . Congratulations . You have collected five stars for
04:06 answering the questions correctly . Are you ready to proceed
04:09 to the next level of writing ? Let's begin .
04:13 Mom is my favorite text . The Happy Prince .
04:16 Also a poem . No , sweetheart The Happy Prince
04:20 as an example of a drama . What is the
04:23 drama ? A drama is written to be performed on
04:27 stage for an audience . It usually consists of dialogue
04:31 between two or more people and at times a description
04:34 of the scene . So how is the happy prince
04:38 of drama ? I'll show what a drama is .
04:41 Let's read . The Happy Prince Son . The Happy
04:50 Prince , by Oscar Wilde , is a very popular
04:53 drama . It starts with a narration or description of
04:56 the play . Narration is used to introduce what's coming
05:00 , and it also sets the context . Let's read
05:03 the narration for this drama to understand Mawr . The
05:08 play is based in an old town where , on
05:11 a tall column stood the statue of the Happy Prince
05:14 . He was gilded all over with thin leaves of
05:17 fine gold for eyes . He had to bright sapphires
05:21 and a large red ruby glowed on his sword hilt
05:25 . Therefore , narration is usually needed to describe the
05:28 setting of a scene , so this means a description
05:32 of what is happening . Yes , you're correct .
05:36 Is the prince alone in the play ? No sweetie
05:40 , their arm or characters in the play . But
05:42 the most important characters are The Happy Prince and the
05:45 Swallow . This is similar to your favorite cartoon ,
05:49 Tom and Jerry . There are many characters , but
05:52 the focus of the story is on Tom and Jerry
05:56 , and you know people who play the role of
05:58 characters . Air called actors . Okay , an actor
06:03 is a person that plays different characters . Yes .
06:07 Now let's start reading this drama and bring examples to
06:10 identify other features of a drama . Now listen .
06:15 One night there flew over the city a little swallow
06:19 . It was night , so he alighted just between
06:22 the feet of the happy Prince to rest . Just
06:25 then , a drop of water fell on him .
06:28 He flew up to the face of the statue and
06:31 saw that happy Prince was weeping . The swallow asks
06:35 . Why are you weeping , my prince , the
06:38 prince replies . When I was alive and had a
06:41 human heart , I did not know what tears were
06:44 for . I lived in the palace of Sand Soucy
06:47 , where sorrow is not allowed to enter In the
06:49 daytime , I played with my companions in the garden
06:52 Andan the evening I lead the dance in the great
06:54 hall round . The garden ran a very lofty wall
06:57 , but I never cared to ask what laid beyond
06:59 it . Everything about me was so beautiful . My
07:02 courtiers called me the happy Prince and happy . Indeed
07:05 I waas if pleasure be happiness . So I lived
07:08 and so I died . Now that I am dead
07:10 . They have set me up here so high that
07:12 I can see all the ugliness on all the misery
07:15 of my city . On though my heart is made
07:17 of lead . Yet I cannot choose but weep .
07:21 Did you see the Happy Prince and the swallow we're
07:24 talking ? This is what is called a dialogue .
07:29 Yes , Mom , the Swallow and the Prince are
07:31 talking to each other . Very good . A dialogue
07:35 is a conversation between two or more people in a
07:39 drama . The lines are spoken by characters . For
07:42 example , in The Happy Prince , the lines are
07:45 spoken by the Happy Prince and the swallow . Let's
07:49 see other features of a drama , the prince said
07:53 . Far away in a little street , there is
07:55 a poor house . One of the windows is open
07:58 on through it , I can see a woman seated
08:00 at a table . She is embroidering passion flowers on
08:02 a setting gown for the loveliest of the queen's maid
08:05 of honor toe , where the next court ball in
08:08 a bed in the corner of the room , her
08:09 little boy is lying ill . He has a fever
08:11 and is asking for oranges . His mother has nothing
08:14 to give him but river water . So he is
08:16 crying . Swallow , swallow little swallow . Will you
08:19 not bring her the ruby out of my sword ?
08:21 Hilt ? My feet are fastened to this pedestal that
08:23 I cannot move . The swallow said I am waited
08:27 for in Egypt by my friends . The prince requests
08:32 swallow please help me and the bird agrees to help
08:35 him . So the swallow picked out the great Ruby
08:39 from the Princes sword and flew to give it to
08:42 the woman . She came back to the prince to
08:44 stay for one more night , son in a drama
08:49 there are acts and scenes . Do you know what
08:52 acts and scenes are ? No . I understand what
08:56 you just read , but I don't know the meaning
08:59 of an act or seen an act or seen is
09:02 a smaller section of a drama . For example ,
09:05 in the Happy Prince . One act or seen is
09:08 when the swallow is talking to the prince and the
09:11 other act or scene is where the swallow gives the
09:13 ruby to the woman like in a movie . Now
09:16 there are more scenes or acts to come in this
09:19 place . So listen carefully . The next morning ,
09:22 the swallow woke up , the swallow says . Today
09:26 I'll go to Egypt , the prince says , Swallow
09:30 , Please stay with me for one more night ,
09:32 the swallow says . My friends await me in Egypt
09:37 , the prince says . Far away , across the
09:39 city , I see a young man in a garret
09:41 . He is leaning over a desk covered with papers
09:44 on in a tumbler by his side . There is
09:46 a bunch of withered violets . His hair is brown
09:48 and crisp , and his lips are red is a
09:50 pomegranate . Andi has large , dreamy eyes . He
09:53 is trying to finish a play for the director of
09:55 the theater , but he is too cold to write
09:57 anymore . There is no fire in the grate on
09:59 hunger has made him faint . The swallow says I
10:03 will stay with you one more night . Shall I
10:05 give one ruby to the man ? The prince says
10:09 . Alas , I have no ruby now , my
10:11 eyes , Airil , that I have left . They're
10:13 made of rare sapphires . Pluck out one of them
10:15 and take it to him . The swallow plucks it
10:19 and takes it to the man . Then the swallow
10:22 flies back to the happy prince and sleeps . The
10:25 next morning , the swallow flies to the harbor and
10:28 sets on the mast . The swallow speaks Tonight I
10:33 fly to Egypt . Then the swallow returns back to
10:36 the happy Prince to bid Good bye . The prince
10:40 speaks . Swallow , swallow little swallow . Please stay
10:43 with me one night longer The swallow replies . It
10:48 is winter and the chill snow will soon be here
10:51 in Egypt . The sun is warm on the green
10:54 palm trees and the crocodiles lie in the mud and
10:57 look lazily about Um my companions are waiting for me
11:01 there . The prince speaks in the square below .
11:05 There stands a little match girl . She has let
11:08 her matches fall in the gutter and they are all
11:10 spoiled . Her father will beat her if she does
11:12 not bring home some money . And she is crying
11:15 . She has no shoes or stockings on her little
11:17 head is bare . Pluck out my other eye and
11:20 give it to her that her father will not beat
11:22 her . The swallow replies I will stay with you
11:26 one night longer , but I cannot pluck out your
11:29 eye . You would be quite blind . Then the
11:32 prince says , Swallow , swallow little swallow . Do
11:35 as I command you . So the swallow plucked out
11:38 the princes other eye and darted down with it .
11:41 He swooped past the match girl and slipped the jewels
11:45 into the palm of her hand . Then the swallow
11:49 came back to the prince . The swallow says You
11:53 are blind now , so I will stay with you
11:56 always , the prince replies . No little swallow .
12:01 You must go away to Egypt . The swallow says
12:05 . I will stay with you always . Then the
12:09 swallow slept at the princes feet . The next day
12:12 , he sat on the princes shoulder and told him
12:15 stories of what he had seen in strange lands .
12:19 The prince says , Dear little swallow , you tell
12:22 me of marvelous things . But more marvelous than anything
12:24 is the suffering of men and of women . There
12:27 is no mystery so great as misery . Fly over
12:29 my city , little swallow and tell me what you
12:31 see . There I am covered with fine gold .
12:34 You must take it off , leaf by leaf and
12:36 give it to my poor . The living . Always
12:38 think that gold could make them happy . The swallow
12:42 said goodbye . Dear Prince , the prince replies ,
12:47 I'm glad that you are going to Egypt at last
12:50 . Little swallow . You have stayed too long .
12:51 Here the swallow said it is not to Egypt that
12:55 I am going . I am going to the house
12:59 of death . After saying this , the swallow fell
13:03 dead on the princes feet at that moment Ah ,
13:06 curious crack sounded inside the statue as if something had
13:11 broken . The fact is that the leaden heart had
13:15 snapped Right into the next day , the statue of
13:19 the prince was pulled down from heaven . The God
13:23 was watching this God said to his angels Bring me
13:27 the two most precious things in the city . The
13:31 angel brought him the leaden heart and the dead bird
13:34 . God said you have rightly chosen for in my
13:37 garden of paradise this little birds will sing forevermore And
13:41 in my city of gold the happy prince shall praise
13:44 me . That was a very nice play . Can
13:49 you tell me more about drama ? Yes , son
13:52 . A drama is performed for an audience . So
13:55 onstage the actors performed the scene and it happens for
13:59 a set of people who watch it live Now do
14:02 you understand how a drama is different from a poem
14:06 ? Yes . We do not see any rhyming words
14:09 in the happy Prince , Right ? Mom ? Yes
14:12 , son . Also , there were no stanzas .
14:15 Instead , there were dialogues . Wow , Mom ,
14:19 there is so much to learn about a drama .
14:22 Yes , son , it's great that you remember the
14:25 differences . Now let's take a quiz so that you
14:28 remember what you learned about a drama . Check your
14:33 understanding of a drama state . If the following sentences
14:37 are true or false , a drama or a play
14:41 has rhyming words false . That's correct . An act
14:52 or seen is a smaller section of a play .
15:00 True , that's correct . Two actors talking on stage
15:07 is called a dialogue or a conversation . True ,
15:19 that's correct . A drama is not performed on stage
15:30 . False . That's correct . A drama has an
15:35 occasional description of the scene . True , that's correct
15:48 . Congratulations . You have collected another five stars .
15:51 You have 10 in all . Are you ready to
15:55 proceed to the next form of writing ? Let's continue
16:00 now . We will read about pros , Son ,
16:03 The last form of writing . We will discuss his
16:06 prose . Let's now find out about prose by exploring
16:10 the solar system as an example . Son , Did
16:16 you know prose is another form of writing , apart
16:19 from a poem and a drama ? Oh , is
16:23 it ? Yes , The primary purpose of prose is
16:27 to share information . Let's see how son , you
16:32 have this wonderful lesson on our solar system in your
16:35 book . Let's read it , shall we , son
16:44 ? The book reads The sun . Nine planets ,
16:47 satellites and other celestial bodies from the solar system ,
16:51 the stars , the planets , the moon and many
16:54 other objects in the sky are called celestial object .
16:59 The objective of this statement was to inform us about
17:02 the solar system . Let's read ahead in the book
17:07 . The sun is the center of the solar system
17:09 . It is huge and is made up of extremely
17:13 hot gasses . The sun is the ultimate source of
17:16 heat and light for the solar system , but that
17:19 tremendous heat is not felt so much by us .
17:23 Because the sun is about 150 million kilometers , or
17:27 93 million miles away from the Earth , son ,
17:31 the word pros comes from a Latin word prosaic ,
17:35 meaning straightforward prose . Writing usually has free flowing speech
17:40 . Examples of pros are magazines , books , essays
17:44 and letters . Pros follows standard rules of sentence structure
17:49 . For example , a new article on a tennis
17:52 match is a pros , and it gives us information
17:55 about what happened in the game . You're doing an
17:59 incredible job . Hey , look here . There are
18:02 nine planets in our solar system in order of their
18:06 distance from the sun . They are mercury , Venus
18:10 , earth , Mars , Jupiter , Saturn , Uranus
18:15 , Neptune and plateau . All the nine planets of
18:19 the solar system move around the sun in fixed paths
18:22 called orbit . Now tell me , do you think
18:25 of prose follows basic grammar rules ? I think so
18:31 . You're right . Pros follows standard rules of grammar
18:35 , punctuation , capitalization and sentence structure . Look how
18:40 all the planet names start with a capital letter .
18:44 Pros is the language of everyday speech . Pros can
18:47 also be a story , either fiction or nonfiction .
18:51 A single sentence is not treated as a single unit
18:54 . Lines are gathered together in paragraphs . Let's now
19:02 complete the final activity on what you just learned about
19:05 pros State . If the following sentences are true or
19:09 false , the main purpose of prose is to give
19:12 information . True , that's correct . Pros does not
19:24 follow any rules of grammar , punctuation , capitalization or
19:29 sentence structure . False . That's correct . Essays and
19:42 letters are examples of prose . True , that's correct
19:54 . Congratulations . You have collected another five stars for
19:58 answering the questions correctly . Now you have 15 in
20:02 total . Son , can you tell the difference between
20:07 different styles of writing now ? Yes , Mom .
