Idaho State Dept. of Education, Boise.
This guide presents a course outline and description of drama/theater arts that satisfies Idaho state graduation requirements for humanities. After a brief description of the philosophy of such courses, the guide describes the critical components that drama/theater course must significantly deal with: aesthetic perception, creative expression through performance, historical and cultural appreciation, and aesthetic valuing and appreciation. The guide then presents detailed goals (including develop a working knowledge of being perceptive and selective in observing and responding to a physical state of being; express feelings and meaning through pantomime skills; understand and use the mechanics of acting; evaluate a theatrical activity as a mirror of the human condition; and develop an appreciation for the cooperative nature of theater) and associated course objectives for each of the critical components described.
