Dramatic Arts in the Secondary School. Michigan Speech Association Curriculum Guide Series, No. 1.
The 15 units in this curriculum guide for dramatic arts in the high school are intended to provide learning experiences to facilitate the student's personal development. Eight of the units deal with various aspects of acting, criticism, and history (e.g., building a character, presenting a one-act play, the history of the drama and the theater, and the historical milieu of Greek and Shakespearean drama). Seven units are concerned with technical aspects of play production-- lighting, scenery design and construction, properties, sound effects, costumes, and make-up. Each of the units contains lesson objectives, an outline of lesson content, suggested learning experiences, a bibliography, and a list of audiovisual materials. (JS)
