Knowledge, Understanding and Skills
5 year learning journey
Drama enhances students' artistic and creative abilities and gives them a better understanding of themselves and their world. Drama fosters self discipline, confidence and team work and develops skills in interpreting, researching, negotiating, problem solving and decision making.
In Drama, assessment is a key feature that enables feedback which allows students to improve. Within this subject assessment takes place in the following ways:
- Student performance including rehersal and performance
- Teacher Observation.
- Discussion and Reflection.
Feedback is essential in Drama as it supports students to meet and exceed their target grade. Feedback occurs verbally within the lesson as students are rehearsing and performing. When students complete the written element within Drama, whole class feedback is used. Students are also encouraged to give their peers feedback.
