Drama One Overview

Created by Karen Loftus

This is a curriculum map for a comprehensive theatre class. The purpose of the course is to give students an overview of theatre in general. The super objective of this course is to have the students “bring it all together” at the end in a culminating project.

Every unit has padding to allow for teacher's own games, reward games, warm ups, cool downs and just time for when class is interrupted, canceled, or a concept needs to be repeated. Please refer to the Pacing Guide for more details and ways to supplement with other DTA materials.

The overview provides a list of all of the units, and provides a description and outline for each - so teachers can get a sense of how the curriculum works together as a whole, or which parts they may choose to use.

Drama One Curriculum Overview
This is a curriculum map for a comprehensive theatre class. The purpose of the course is to give students an overview of theatre in general. The super objective of this course is to have the students “bring it all together” at the end in a culminating project. The essential questions for the year are: • What are the most important tools of the actor? • Who’s who in the theatre? The answer to the first question is: mind, body, and voice. Each unit reflects one of those tools: pantomime - body, improvisation - mind etc. The answer to the second is explored throughout the year.
