A Course Guide in the Theatre Arts at the Secondary School Level.
Secondary School Theatre Association, Washington, DC.
This guide contains activities developed by experienced secondary school theatre teachers to fit the goals they set up for theatre education. The purpose of this volume is to demonstrate concepts in theatre that may be used for study in the art under varying circumstances. The material is designed to be a basis for action--starting points for several kinds of theatre involvement. Each activity is accompanied by suggestions for teacher procedure and by suggestions of behavioral evidence of progress among adolescents in theatre study. Some of the activities included in this guide are improvising, discovering the process of acting, analyzing the concept of movement in acting, organizing a play for production, and building your own theatre. The activities also provide students with an opportunity to achieve a concept of self in the theatre. (RB)
