The attached HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL curriculum maps include Beginning Acting, Intermediate Acting, Advanced Acting, and Theatre Design & Technology classes. They can be used for similarly titled courses or units contained within each map and can be rearranged to match varied coursework offered at other schools. I've attached pdf versions. No matter the map, each map includes "Unit of Study", "Priority Standards", "Learning Targets" (Long and short), "Unit Self-Test Questions", "Formative Assessments", "Summative Assessments", and "Spiraled Assessments", as well as "Culturally Responsive Teaching Practices" listed at the bottom. The assumption is that any rubrics referenced are either the Oregon Thespians State rubrics for acting/technical theatre or teacher-created for a specific assessment, such as a theatre history project, that does not have a state or national rubric. With the exception of additional standards listed in the Theatre Design & Technology class, all standards indicated are the high school Proficient, Accomplished, and Advanced levels of the 2014 National Standards (http://www.nationalartsstandards.org/). The additional standards listed in the Tech class are taken from the more comprehensive CTE standards in Arizona and CRLEs from the ODE site with the intention that theatre teachers may need this information for further alignment when seeking CTE certification for this type of course. Full text of each standard is included the first unit in which it is aligned. In subsequent units, only the strand (TH.Cr.2.1.I.a, for example) is referenced. See the National Standards for strands. Each unit indicates the approximate length of time estimated for each unit, although clearly that varies year to year, class to class, teacher to teacher, student to student. Some units are not included however units such as "Theatre Dance" and "Voice" could be used in combination for a "Musical Theatre" unit, for example. Also, even when a particular text is referenced, as in Beginning Acting with The Miracle Worker, an alternate text can be selected and the standards remain consistent. Likewise, the theatre history unit standards assume that teachers may vary content. For example, one year or class might focus on Greek Theatre while another year or class may focus on Theatre of the Oppressed while all classes may be exposed to Shakespeare and the Renaissance.
