NEWLY UPDATED WITH GREEK THEATRE HISTORY POWERPOINT/HANDOUT AND 6 IMPROV DRAMA GAME POWERPOINTS
A FEW THINGS TO NOTE:
-included are many generic "go to" handouts that you could use with a grade 11 or 12 course as well
-they're not specifically divided into 9 and 10, because the course sometimes overlap and can be mixed and matched
- there's no actual scripts included with this bundle due to copyright reasons, however I have provided you with the names of the books/resources I use
-each unit starts with a black framed title - so you can easily make these into main TABS in your binder set-up. It'll help you organize it all easier!
I use this content over a 5 month semester.
(not including holidays and breaks, of course)
Most projects are at least 1-2 weeks, depending (with introducing the unit / rehearsals / presentations).
To save time, or extend, you could always eliminate some of the smaller projects, so it's really flexible.
(I usually do one minor project, followed by 1 major per unit)
The CPT's and monologues are easily 3 weeks each - but of course it depends on your classes and how quickly they're working and memorizing their lines.
