This is given during the first two days of drama class - as part of an overall intro package.
I get them to complete this individually, then we take them up and add-onto their lists together.
I find that because drama is such an interactive class, it's so important to set these rules right off the bat, and do it TOGETHER with them...rather than just lecture them about it.
It goes through how they'll act during warm-ups, rehearsals, as an audience member etc.
For the last part, where it can all be summed up in one word, I have them sit in a circle and say their word one at a time. It really re-enforces our ideas (respect, individuality, kindness etc.)
It's cool to hear the same words repeated...sets the tone!
NOTE - I also put that image of the Genie from "Aladdin" as a bee because it sparks a great discussion about who did the VOICE of the genie - Robin Williams - and how there's many different forms of acting.
