Drama — Grades 6-8
Students learn the basics of stage movement, behavior, and interaction through a series of exercises that focus on stage behaviors, improvisation techniques, and theater games.
Students learn the basics of reading, selecting, performing, and refining a previously written dramatic piece.
Each week, students start off with a series of improvisations and theater games that grow in complexity. Students read several monologues and select one to memorize and perform. Care is taken to coordinate the drama curriculum needs with aspects of other curricula where presentation skills are needed, such as Entrepreneurial studies and Humanities.
Students brainstorm, develop, rehearse, and perform a piece of their own devising.
