Atlanta (2) IB workshop - DP Theatre Category 3 - Subject Specific Seminar

February 12 - February 14, 2021

Artistic information


Title
DP Theatre Category 3 – Subject Specific Seminar (SSS).

Workshop goals
‘Subject Specific Seminar’ or ‘SSS’ workshops are bespoke, one off, 3-day Theatre workshops that fully cover the key changes in the new subject guide and prepare existing DP Theatre teachers for the demands of delivering the new course. The workshop will lead teachers through the course changes and carefully highlight the nuances of the updated programme. The IB recommends that all current DP Theatre teachers attend a face-to-face SSS workshop.
SSS workshops are not appropriate for Category 1 teachers – who should look to attend training at one of our Category 1 workshops in the summer of 2021.

Master class
Due to the time constraints of an SSS and the amount of content to be delivered regarding the course changes, there will be no master class at this workshop.

Theatre
All participants will attend one professional theatre performance. Details to be confirmed by August 2020.
