Course Description

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
