TH 305 - Theatre Methods

2.00 credits
This course will prepare the future theatre educator to teach theatre arts and drama in various educational environments. Students will acquire knowledge about child development, legal and professional obligations of the theatre teacher, and varied pedagogical approaches to theatre education. Much of the course will focus on creative drama processes - engagement in theatre without and end product in mind - to supplement more traditional production-based skills. Students will explore strategies for communicating script development, improvisation, and other theatrical skills to students across grades K-12, and will be mindful of adapting content to be inclusive and developmentally appropriate. The course requires dedicated time in a field placement setting to demonstrate course competencies.
