ADA10 - Grade 9 Dramatic Arts

Description/Rationale

This course emphasizes the active exploration of dramatic forms and techniques, using materials from a wide range of authors, genres, and cultures. Students construct, discuss, perform, and analyse drama, and then reflect on the experiences to develop an understanding of themselves, the art form, and the world around them. Drama is a social art form. Constructing, performing, and analysing drama involves a collective experience through social interaction. By communicating in both their real and imagined worlds, students develop proficiency in listening, speaking, questioning, and negotiating. Through the process of “stepping into the shoes of others”, students develop and express empathy.

How This Course Supports the Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations

The study of the dramatic arts and our Catholic faith are natural partners because they are both focussed on the fundamental question of what it means to be human. Nearly all of the OCSG expectations are met during the students’ journey through the program, and the unit planning creates an effective process for self-discovery, community building, and communication. At the end of the course, students have a deeper understanding of themselves and others, as well as the skills and orientation necessary to meet the challenges of doing the Lord’s work in the new millennium.
