General Course Information and Notes

General Notes

This course is designed to give an overview of theatre arts.  Students are introduced to the fundamentals of stage tech, including make-up, costuming, set construction and lighting.  Students perform improvisation, monologues, readings and acting scenes.  The content includes an introduction to the process of directing, basic vocal techniques, movement, theory, production management and script writing.  Students are primarily exposed to pieces in their native language.  Students are encouraged to view at least one out-of-class production per nine weeks for critical review.

All instruction related to Theatre benchmarks should be framed by the Big Ideas and Enduring Understandings.  Non-Theatre benchmarks listed in this course are also required and should be fully integrated in support of arts instruction.

Special Note:  This course may require students to participate in extra rehearsals and performances beyond the school day.

Honors and Advanced Level Course Note: Advanced courses require a greater demand on students through increased academic rigor.  Academic rigor is obtained through the application, analysis, evaluation, and creation of complex ideas that are often abstract and multi-faceted.  Students are challenged to think and collaborate critically on the content they are learning. Honors level rigor will be achieved by increasing text complexity through text selection, focus on high-level qualitative measures, and complexity of task. Instruction will be structured to give students a deeper understanding of conceptual themes and organization within and across disciplines. Academic rigor is more than simply assigning to students a greater quantity of work.

Florida’s Benchmarks for Excellent Student Thinking (B.E.S.T.) Standards:

This course includes Florida’s B.E.S.T. ELA Expectations (EE) and Mathematical Thinking and Reasoning Standards (MTRs) for students. Florida educators should intentionally embed these standards within the content and their instruction as applicable. For guidance on the implementation of the EEs and MTRs, please visit  and select the appropriate B.E.S.T. Standards package.

English Language Development (ELD) Standards Special Notes Section:

Teachers are required to provide listening, speaking, reading and writing instruction that allows English language learners (ELL) to communicate for social and instructional purposes within the school setting.   For the given level of English language proficiency and with visual, graphic, or interactive support, students will interact with grade level words, expressions, sentences and discourse to process or produce language necessary for academic success. The ELD standard should specify a relevant content area concept or topic of study chosen by curriculum developers and teachers which maximizes an ELL’s need for communication and social skills.
