Ontario Inst. for Studies in Education, Toronto.
Reported are the results of a 3-year project to prepare and evaluate pilot units and courses in drama and theater arts for grades 7-12 and to prepare suggested courses for the training and certification of drama and theater arts teachers. Most of the guide is comprised of descriptions of each course which give (1) the purpose and organization of each course, (2) the content (e.g., development of awareness, creative movement with music, pantomime, improvisations using speech), (3) a bibliography for teachers, and (4) a list of instructional aids including musical recordings and films. An evaluation of the project includes recommendations on teacher training, class size, equipment, and student participation in theater arts activities. Appendices provide a statement and outline for the training and certification of theater arts teachers, and an evaluation guide for theater arts project courses. (JM)
