GED 590 - Drama Structures

Drawing on the concepts first conceived by noted British educator Dorothy Heathcote, this course demonstrates techniques for building extensive dramatic improvisations with elementary and middle school students which leads them to feel as if they have lived – for a short time – in a different time or place. A series of dramatic activities that build on one another helps students understand complex issues as it deepens their theatrical skills – all without the limitations of producing a play.

Prerequisite: GED 667 and/or GED 670 or permission of instructor.

Credits: 2 cr.
