Learn to find your own voice as a writer. Working in small groups, gain the confidence to write daily and to share your writing with others. Learn that people listen and respond to your written ideas. You will experience a wide variety of sources that stimulate subjects to write about (e.g. art, music, life). The course is fun, and it is work. The fun comes in expressing your ideas with others. The work comes in learning techniques and rewriting skills. You will be a writer when you finish this course.

Course Title: Drama as Literature (P)

Grade Level: 11th and 12th

Drama as Literature is for students interested in studying the structure of dramatic literature, the relationship of plays to the period in which they were written, and a general knowledge of the classical periods of our literature.

Nearly all periods of theater literature are covered from the classical Greeks to the modern American playwrights. Extensive material will also be given for the following periods of theater history: Medieval, Commedia dell-Arte, English Renaissance, modern European theater, and twentieth century American theater. The structure of this course is similar to college courses. The first quarter is a lecture/test format, and the second quarter entails writing analytical essays and a research paper. Homework for this class includes reading a Shakespearean play, studying for tests, doing extensive library research for the paper at the end of the semester, and writing essays. When you finish this course, you will have a tremendous head-start on college as we cover all the great pieces of theater literature required by many college English courses.

The class will read four to six major pieces of literature together in class, as well as numerous shorter pieces. Students will also read and report on four teacher-approved literary works on their own. In addition to this, most of the second semester will be devoted to the process of writing a fully supported and carefully documented research paper of the kind they will be expected to produce in their college courses. Students who do not complete the research paper will fail the class.
