Learners will be given opportunities to participate in and interpret their own and others' drama. Learners have the option to work practically as performers in Units 1 and 2.

Learners will investigate a practitioner or genre of drama, work col- laboratively to develop ideas to communicate meaning and experiment with dramatic conventions, forms and techniques to produce and realise a piece of original theatre.
