APTH 612 - An Introduction to Drama Conventions (3 Credits)

Prerequisite: None
This course introduces students to the key conventions in the drama-in-education canon such as the use of the still-image and role-play. It explores a variety of strategies that can be employed to apply them effectively for a wide range of groups in many different settings, both in and beyond the boundaries of formal educational institutions. Students will experiment with ways in which to sequence activities in order to structure effective learning experiences and will become critically acquainted with the pedagogical principles on which they are founded.
