1. I've never heard that term before -- and when I looked it up on google.com, all I got were all the assignments that use the term, but no definition.

The only thing I can think of is that people (or a person) can pick up the poem or play and begin performing/reading.

?????

2. I've never heard this term either. I found the same information from Google that Writeacher did.

I wonder why Axia makes up obscure terms for its classes.
