This is the final project that we do in grade 9 drama (in grade 10, we do the Docudrama CPT that is found in my shop).
The final CPT is worth 15% of their overall mark, so it takes a month in-class to complete.
We give them scripts in bigger groups, and they have to complete the following package.
It involves planning ALL the elements of a production - from lighting, costume, direction, blocking, set ETC! It also includes character questions.
There's also a promotional element involved where students complete a commercial, ticket, program, and poster.
The students really learn about all the parts of a production - and how much work it takes to put one on!
TIP - this package is made into a "PROMPT BOOK" where students paste in every page, plus their script....they use this book every day during rehearsals to keep them organized and to write in notes.
