Fuller, Frank, Jr., Ed.
This guide is designed to assist school administrators and teachers in planning and developing dramatic and theatre arts programs that meet the needs of a wide range of students from kindergarten through grade 12. The first section of the guide sets forth a philosophy, goals, and criteria for effective theatre arts programs in general. The second section outlines a model program for primary and elementary schools and includes instructional objectives, a statement of program scope, and sample activities. The third section details a model program for the junior high or middle school and offers a sample instructional unit on exploring careers through creative dramatics. The fourth section delineates a model program for the secondary school and presents a course outline on theatre arts exploration and a sample instructional unit on the nature of theatre. Each program outline also contains charts of expected competencies for the appropriate grade levels and self-assessment checklists for evaluating the programs. Appendixes contain suggestions for building a theatre arts program, notes on program evaluation, and a list of several elements common to all arts. (FL)
