Drama works : teacher's resource / by Kirsty Cunningham Irvine, Joe Tirone.Drama Works is your one-stop sourcebook for texts, theory, and activities. This colourful and visually engaging student resource offers current, accessible, and performance-ready approaches to the study of high school dramatic arts and encourages students to connect theoretical knowledge, play, and text excerpts with the tools needed to devise, adapt, and stage their own original works. Each chapter follows a three-part structure—Minds On, Action, and Consolidation—that mirrors the natural continuum of student skill development and allows for use in multiple grade levels. Extended screenplay excerpts have been carefully selected to help illustrate genre concepts and offer a range of classic and contemporary choices. - publisher's website
