Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms J. Druitt

In this course students will:

  • Learn to use drama techniques such as voice, body, movement and use of space
  • Devise and perform a drama based on a topic / stimulus / current event using elements and conventions of drama for impact and meaning
  • Perform an acting role in a production of a published play to an invited audience
  • Explore historical theatre forms and their theoretical and physical performance features

Students keep a digital folder reflecting on their own and others' contributions. This written / oral reflection is part of the assessment in Drama and provides a record of work participated in and viewed.

Students will be offered the opportunity to view a range of performances to influence their understanding of theatre. They will practise writing critical responses required for external examinations at Level 2 and 3.
