EDUC 3133 - Methods of Teaching Theatre, Speech, and Debate

Credits: 3 Spring, Even

In this course, students will learn, evaluate, and practice pedagogical approaches used in secondary speech, debate, and theatre classrooms. In thinking through approaches for these fine arts courses, each pre-service educator will not only begin to understand the intersection between theory and practice, they will also be challenged to generate creative approaches to strengthen proven methodologies. Specifically, this course will cover the following concepts: 1) components related to teaching theatre history, technical theatre, theatre performance, and theatre administration; 2) components related to teaching the oral tradition, speech types, and methods of speech organization and speaking skills; and 3) components related to teaching debate history, debate types and rules, and debate organization and presentation skills.

Prerequisites: admission to the Teacher Education program and concurrent enrollment in EDUC 3312 .
