English and Plays is a 25-hour course, the first of three in Secondary V English Language Arts. To achieve the two targeted competencies, learners are guided in learning about theatre and in developing and performing a scene. The learners will read, listen to, and watch a variety of short plays and scenes. They will learn about characters, stakes and conflicts and see how this can relate to their personal experience. By the end of the course, the adult learners will apply the communication conventions (proper enunciation, pitch, rhythm) in performing a scene. Accompanying video and audio resources are available online.
Each learning situation in this guide includes activities that relate to real-life contexts. The activities will help learners develop the competencies for this course.
