8th Grade Drama

This is going to be a fun year of developing new friendships, taking risks, challenging our creativity and working hard as a group to create dramatic works of art. I am looking forward to our time together as a theater class.

We will begin this course with various theater improvisation games. These games are designed to prepare you for working together as a strong ensemble and are a fun way of developing solid acting techniques. This will be followed by a unit on vocal projection and articulation. A mime unit will help you to develop an articulate and expressive body and will enable you to make physical character choices when performing spoken theater.

The year will conclude with an ensemble-based production that we will perform for a peer and public audience

Our first performance project will be to write and perform personal speeches based on what you believe in. We will follow the curriculum created by National Public Radio's program 'This I Believe'. To find out more about this program follow this link:

I look forward to a great year in 8th grade drama. Please feel free to come to me with any questions or suggestions you may have about this class.
