A few weeks ago, the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority published the 2011 VCE Drama and Theatre Studies playlist. Students in Victoria studying Unit 3 Drama must see at least one play from this official playlist this year, while students undertaking Units 3 and 4 Theatre Studies must see at least one play in Unit 3 and one play in Unit 4 from the playlist. Teachers set classwork where students respond to the plays in performance and all students respond to questions about the play/s they visited on the end-of-year written examinations in these subjects. Download the 2011 playlist here (.doc).
Over the coming weeks on The Drama Teacher, I will be posting resources for teachers on several of the plays on these official playlists. Stay tuned!
I think I’ll take my Unit 3 Drama students to see the works Random and The Soul Miner.
Who will other teachers be taking their students to? Feel free to comment below.
