Introduction to Play Production: Teacher's Guide. Career Education Project.
Walker, Bonnie L.
The curriculum guide is an instructional package designed for beginning pre-college drama students with hearing impairments. The seven lessons emphasize work requirements in the theater as well as an understanding of drama. Each lesson includes a list of lesson objectives, materials provided, materials and equipment needed, and vocabulary introduced in the lesson. There follows, then, a description of a related activity, with suggestions for class discussion or further projects. Lessons address the following aspects: components and definition of a play, the role and function of a playwright, roles of designers and technicians, actors, makeup application and use, the responsibilities of directors, and preparation for a career in the theater. The guide was field tested with five students and two teachers and revisions were subsequently made. (CL)
