The Drama program for MYP and DP is an exciting and dynamic sequence of work which allows students to experience the subject both theoretically and experientially. From grade 6 -9, students can elect to choose Drama as an elective for a semester of study. During their experience of the Drama course they will cover the 4 MYP criteria: Knowing and Understanding, Developing Skills, Thinking Creatively and Responding. Topics covered will include Introduction to Drama, Mime, Greek Theatre and Script work amongst other theatrical traditions. Students in grade 10 will have the opportunity to select Drama as a yearlong subject and will cover topics such as Play building, Shakespeare and Realism.
DP students will cover the prescribed works set by the IB over the two years and study a number of different practitioners and theatrical styles during this time. Assessment tasks include Collaborative Project, Solo Performance, Research Presentation and Director’s Notebook.
