Event description
This year's DSA Senior Drama Teachers Forum will be focusing on the NEW SACE Drama courses which we will start teaching next year!

About this Event

Are you concerned about the new SACE Stage 1 & 2 Drama Courses?

Let us relieve your concerns and give you a chance to collect and create some resources that will help you to implement, scaffold and effectively teach these courses in 2020 and beyond!

Throughout the session, we will take an in depth look at the processes involved in creating a theatre company and how to get the best collaborative work out of your group and we’ll also take a look at the new assessment criteria and how you can apply it in your classroom. We’ll explore and share a range of ideas and resources and help to ensure you are as prepared as you can be for teaching the new course next year.

Renowned Youth Arts Practitioner Claire Glenn will be joining us for the first session of the day to practically explore building a theatre company and the ensemble. For more information about Claire, her bio is below.
