Adjunt Drama Teacher 2015-2016 (Re-posted August 25, 2015)

The course is taught over two sessions: September 11–November 6 (half of the students in the class), approximately 22 sessions and November 9–January 22 (other half of the students in the class), approximately 24 sessions. Compensation for each session is $845, or $1690 for both sessions. Class periods are: Mondays, 10:55-11:40; Tuesdays, 10:55-11:40; and Fridays, 10:05-10:50.
All 10th grade students are required to take this course. Enrollment each quarter will be 10-12 students. The course is meant to be an experience and process-oriented exploration of drama, and is not oriented toward a final performance. We can provide narrative descriptions of the course as taught in previous years, but the content and design of the course will be up to the teacher. The course is graded and credited, so the teacher will need to keep a record of class attendance and provide a brief narrative description of the class and a participation-based grade for each student to the Registrar at the end of each quarter. Please email a letter of interest and resume to Bonnie McClelland. (no calls, please).
