Course Outline:

Do you want to improve your confidence while having fun in a supportive learning environment? Do you enjoy developing your creative ideas alongside your peers? This course aims to nurture self-expression and continues to develop confidence in communication and develop stage presence. We will explore a range of ways we communicate in the real world and improve our online and face to face communication skills. We will cover the following areas:

  • voice production and non-verbal communication

  • improvisation and theatresports

  • working with a range of texts from slam poetry to audition pieces and scenes

Students who wish to take Drama at Year 11 are strongly encouraged to study both Year 10 Drama courses, 10DRAa and 10DRAb.

Assessment:

Students are encouraged to assess their own and other’s work using structured feedback.

Where Does It Lead:

Students learn to relate to and work with others, develop critical and creative thinking skills while developing performance and communication skills in a range of dramatic contexts. Skills learnt can be applied to a range of subjects which require students to speak and perform confidently in front of an audience and clearly convey their ideas and thoughts to others. Students can continue with Drama into the senior years, as Drama is a UE endorsed subject.
