Drama Two Overview

by Matt Webster

The Drama Two Curriculum was created as a model that empowers teachers to utilize the full content of the DTA Lesson Plan Library as either a foundation or a supplement to their entire classroom curriculum. With that in mind, the units are a combination of existing DTA material and new material. Lesson plans have been adapted to fit the needs of the curriculum (eg. The Colour Wheel Lesson Plan has been adapted from an existing costuming lesson plan in the Lesson Plan Library).

The Drama Two Curriculum is performance based. It has been developed to expand and deepen the students’ skills as artists. They will do so by building on material covered in the Drama One Curriculum, with units in: Character Analysis, Monologue Analysis and Writing, Shakespeare Performance, and Design. The curriculum will culminate in a Devised Class Play.

As you use this curriculum, think about how you can create your own units and adapt lesson plans based on the needs of your program.

Character Analysis

by Matt Webster

The Drama Two Curriculum has been developed to expand and deepen the students’ skills as actors. In this unit, students will use open scenes to generate characters and scenarios. They will then explore the ideas of “objective,” “tactics,” and “status.” The unit culminates with students applying learned character analysis techniques to classroom generated open scenes.

Monologues

by Matt Webster

In the Monologue Unit, students will learn the building blocks of monologues while writing a simple monologue. This unit is divided into two parts.

In part one, the Monologue Writing Made Easy unit by Matt Banaszynski is reviewed or executed in full, depending on class needs.

In part two, students will dissect monologues as a vehicle for character and performance and will write more refined monologues based on existing fictional characters from fairytales or myths. Students will then rehearse and perform their monologues, as a final project for the unit.

Design

by Matt Webster

In this unit, students will explore and experiment with the basic building blocks of design: Line, Shape, and Color. Once students have a solid foundation of those concepts, they will move on to stage properties and scenic flats as additional building blocks of design. They will then apply their knowledge and skills to a series of assignments, so they can demonstrate their design knowledge and creativity.
