Level 1 Drama

Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms M. Figgest

Drama comes under the umbrella of the Arts in the NZ Curriculum. It provides opportunity for students to gain knowledge and life-skills that will equip them for a number of career pathways. Level 1 Drama begins the pathway for NCEA Drama through to Level 3 and Scholarship. Students will: - Work to strengthen self-awareness, self-confidence and resilience. - Work to understand and appreciate their place within the world and their connections with others. - Work as individuals and as part of a team to develop the disciplines and skills of self-management, reflective practice, collaboration and leadership. - Develop skills of analysis, interpretation and communication through performance, using the techniques of voice, body, movement and space. - Investigate the forms and purposes of drama in different historical, geographical and cultural contexts. - Develop skills of research, evaluation and refinement of ideas in creating drama performance using the conventions of drama. - Perform and respond to drama, making critical judgements about how techniques, elements, conventions and technologies are used to create form and meaning in their own and others’ work.
