Drama Curriculum Guide 7-12. North Dakota Arts Curriculum Project.
North Dakota State Dept. of Public Instruction, Bismarck.
Intended to help students develop into discerning and perceptive theater audience members, this curriculum guide seeks to promote a course of study in which each and every student becomes aware of the world around them and how the arts, and specifically theater, are a reflection of and a comment on the world. It includes goals, objectives, activities, and evaluation techniques that may be used in developing both junior high and high school courses that will foster an appreciation and understanding of theater. Following an introduction, philosophy statement, list of goals and general objectives, and a scope and sequence chart, the guide presents six units of study: (1) Dramatic Literature; (2) Theater History; (3) Theater Theory; (4) Elements of Performance; (5) Theater Appreciation; and (6) Self. Within each unit of study, various goals are outlined, learner outcomes and evaluation techniques are suggested, a teacher's self-assessment form is provided, a short bibliography is included, and several sample activities are included which pertain to the specific topic area. A bibliography lists theater organizations in North Dakota as well as publishers of plays and musicals. A theater perusal script inventory is attached. (SR)
