For example this task has helped me because while doing my Theatre in Education evaluation, I now have the understanding that I will need to link my daily logs in my evaluation, how did Lynn’s voice lessons help me come up with the final Evil Shape Collector character.

I had a brief understanding of what the UAL assessors were looking for and I am getting to grips with referencing and evaluating my own work and how the work of peers has effected me, I now need to
