2019-20 Theatre Arts Syllabi

Welcome to Theatre Arts!

Theatre Arts is concerned with the communication of human issues. Its purpose is to teach students to cope with the complexities of human relationships in modern society. Students should examine theatre as a part of daily life, as a way of enhancing knowledge and skills, and as a means of expression. All students will benefit from ongoing educational theatre experiences.

 

This year’s curriculum will encourage each student to develop confidence and poise through various group, individual, and performance activities. This course combines a wide variety of activities which promote growth in the following areas: listening skills, critical thinking abilities, research techniques, performance and delivery skills.

 

Developing these skills is a result of the combination of teacher and peer assistance. As a group, our goals are to encourage excellence, praise effort, listen attentively, work diligently and strive for the best. Since Theatre Arts is frightening for many people, our goals are designed to help each of us remember that our response to a student’s performance determines our success as an entire class.

My name is Stephen Jackson. This will be my 20th year at Sanger High School. I have been working in theatre for the past 27 years. I am currently working on my Masters of Theatre at Texas A&M Commerce. So that I can become a better teacher and director for my students.
 
I am married to my wife Amber and we have 2 children. Shepard (14) and Shenandoah (9)
 
I am looking forward to the 2019-2020 School year and I expect great things.
 
This year I will be teaching Theatre Arts I-IV as well as Theatre Tech I-IV
