Theatre: A Maryland Curricular Framework.
Maryland State Dept. of Education, Baltimore.
This booklet is designed to assist administrators and teachers in planning, developing, and implementing K-12 theater instruction. The materials presented in the booklet are intended to aid local school systems in planning local curricula, developing a local philosophy, defining local goals, evaluating the extent to which the goals are contained in current curricular offerings, identifying needed curricular content, and defining selected theater terms with important curricular implications. The booklet is organized in five major sections: (1) Philosophy; (2) Goals and Subgoals (broad statements of desired outcomes derived from the philosophy); (3) Expectancies (behavioral statements); (4) Illustrative Objectives (sample objectives which show how goals and subgoals may be treated at particular learning levels); and (5) Curriculum Development Process (describing how to develop and use goals, subgoals, expectancies, and objectives in the preparation of theater scopes and sequences and instructional units). Six appendixes contain a sample set of illustrative objectives, a note on required Maryland competency objectives, a theater curricular framework glossary, and lists of the Maryland Theatre Curricular Framework task force, review panel, and national review panel.
