Drama Education Guidelines: A Curriculum Guideline for the Theatre Arts in Education in the State of Washington.
Gallagher, Kent G., Ed.
These guidelines represent an initial publication of curriculum guidelines for a total program in drama education for K-12. Five areas are discussed: reasons for education in the theatre arts; space and equipment requirements for teaching drama; drama education in the elementary schools; drama for the junior and senior high schools; and preparation for teachers of drama. The content of the curriculum revolves around the four major elements of the art of drama; acting, playmaking, designing-producing the plays, and audience. Activities are suggested for each grade level. At each grade, acting-audience elements, playmaking elements, and designing-producing elements are discussed. The secondary curriculum continues the study of drama as an art form and includes acting, producing, viewing, and studying drama in its sequence. (MKM)
