Level 1 Drama - Theatre through the Ages - Heros, Villains and Clowns - Semester A

Although 2021 timetables are yet to be finalised, course selection is now finished. Any changes to student courses will now take place in January 2020.

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms P. Sherry

This semester we will explore the history of comedy and modern day soap opera.  Working as a class and in small groups, we will refine our acting skills by applying drama techniques to create stereotypical characters.  We will apply research and presentation skills in exploring the origins and features of at least one theatre form and then apply our knowledge in creating a devised theatre piece based on a chosen theme/idea.  It is expected that we will attend at least ONE professional theatre show that will support the end of year External Examination. This subject requires full participation from all students throughout the semester and offers out side class performance opportunities.

Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

Students are encouraged to attend at least one live performances which will be needed for the external exam.

Recommended Prior Learning

Year 10 Drama is preferred or by permission of the Drama teacher or HOF approval.

Due to the group nature of all of the internal standards in this course, students who have a poor attendance record or choose to take a subject that requires major learning off campus may find it difficult to complete all group performance assessments.

Students are expected to participate in all learning activities.
