To Be or Not To Be? An Exploration of Issues Involved in Drama Program Development at Harris County High School.
Jackson, Valery L.
The purpose of this paper is the exploration of various issues surrounding the ongoing development of the drama/performing arts program at Harris County High School in Hamilton, Georgia. Eventually, the information collected will be assimilated into a dissertation at Auburn University. For this segment of the study, a literature review was conducted and one of the three assistant principals of Harris County High School was conducted and one of the three assistant principals of Harris County High School was interviewed. There is a contemporary call for drama research worldwide because a great void exists in this area of study, especially in the United States. Additionally, the drama program at Harris County High School before 1998 was developed primarily as an extension to the regular English classes. The author is the first drama coach to seriously pursue the creation/implementation of a performance drama curriculum at that particular site. (Contains 16 references.) (Author/RS)
