Q: Drama Club/Theater Teachers

I am taking on a new project in my school. Last year I had many students do a theatrical reading performance of "A Christmas Carol". It was a huge success. This year I am developing Drama Club, which will ultimately produce a theater play. Are there any teachers on this site that has experience as a Drama or Theater coach who I can befriend as a mentor for ideas and suggestions in developing this new project? I have limited experience in drama and theater and would like someone with experience to act as a sounding board and advisor as I go through this process. I have many resources I have obtained from the internet, as well as purchased some books on the subject.

I can't help you but I want to recommend sth. I've done this w/ my students using Shakespeare, I have them first translate the lines into modern English. I also have them translate Chinese works into English.

I will be using David Farmer's, "101 Drama Games and Activities" and Denver Casado's "Teaching Drama: The Essential Handbook". My students will get certificates by completing the ASDAN "Expressive Arts" short course program. I also have numerous websites and videos to pull material from. My goal with this program is not necessarily to teach them about theater or acting, but rather about how to use these skills to improve their overall English. Last year, when the students did the theatrical reading, we saw significant increases in their TOEFL scores and better in-class works.

A:It will depend on a lot of factor based on the new scoring system, did you try the new scoring scheme on wechat? Go to search on wechat and type it in and you'll find one there than test yourself and look at your score and see if you can improve anywhere to make the score higher, better start improving your chinese and hopefully youre in a needy city. Just for the record: ESL teachers or teachers of any subject will always be a B card Talent. -- ironman510
