DRAMA 21F - Full Year
Teacher in Charge: Mrs J. Grubb
This course builds upon the foundations of Level 1 Drama. The students will study acting technique and performance in greater depth.
Drama is a fundamental subject for applying and exploring the key competencies. Students continuously work in a group setting using their communication, teamwork and leadership skills. Students analyse texts and interpret meaning. They are required to think creatively and independently.
The units of work we cover include:
- devising a group performance, using the elements and conventions of drama
- studying a theatre form and applying the features of this form in a performance to an invited audience of friends and family
- analysing and exploring acting techniques, theorists and drama processes
- There is the option of writing one or two external examinations. One is on critiquing and analysing a live professional performance they have seen during the year The other is on a theatre form that was studied during the year.
-There is also the option of further study in directing and script writing
This course will prepare students for future academic and vocational opportunities in Theatre and Film, Broadcasting, Law, Communications, Journalism, Teaching, Early Childhood and many other areas that focus on the application of key competencies.
