Learning Outcomes

 Drama 237 has been devised to provide an opportunity for you, the student:

      1)   to develop an appreciation for the art of theatre performance by attending performances and writing about theatre productions during the term
      2)   to develop an understanding of the various skills that make up the art of acting and by developing these skills through participation in class exercises on topics such as emotional recall, sensitivity, vocal and physical characterization and text analysis. As well, we will focus on the interdependence of the actor’s voice, body, and intellect

      3)   to develop communication and collaboration skills by sharing personal observations with others in the class and by actively participating in group exercises and presentations
      4)   to further develop a critical perspective about the world in which we live and in which we create by sensitively observing and responding to class experiences through the writing of a weekly journal
      5) to further develop as a life-long-learner by integrating the knowledge, skills and values addressed in this class
