Thank you for this. I have moved from NSW where I taught Drama for over 10 years to QLD and I am now in my second year in a QLD school. All I can say that it takes time to adjust.

10 years ago

I think that it is also worth noting that the Qld Syllabus acknowledges the lack of consistency regarding what constitutes an ‘element’ by prefacing the list in the syllabus with:

“Elements of drama can include but are not restricted to the following:”

In this way, there is a real value placed on the context in which you are putting a dramatic work together (or pulling it apart) and the elements you may be working with.
