Level 1 Drama
Teacher in Charge: Ms L. Wilson
What will I learn and How will I learn?
This Level 1 Drama course focusses on building upon the skills students have learned in Junior Drama. They will work in groups, learning to co-operate and collaborate. They will also develop their awareness of dramatic techniques, elements and conventions and how to use these and dramatic techniques to create theatre pieces. As well, they will develop their acting and performance skills which will prepare them for NCEA assessments. They will learn how to devise drama, how to interpret a script, and how to perform in front of others and through different types of theatre.
Submitting Internal Assessments
All assessments are done in groups and are "live". Some written work may be required and is due on the day of the performance, unless otherwise stated by the Teacher in Charge. There is one written external paper.
Resubmission and Further Assessment Opportunities
Resubmissions can only be offered once and only if the whole group are willing. There is no further teaching available. Further assessment opportunities are not available.
