Competency Area: Curriculum & Instructio
n Restricted to Education Department students through December 16; open to other Master's students on December 17.

There is no surer way to build a collaborative community than to immerse a group of people in creating a dramatic performance. In this experiential class, participants will learn performance skills by playing drama games, develop a play, make and gather costumes, prepare props, and practice and perform a lighthearted play. By experiencing the "steps" involved in developing a dramatic production, participants will have the opportunity to gain an understanding of how to lead children in the rich, interdisciplinary curriculum that drama offers. No previous experience in drama is needed.
