Atlanta IB workshop - DP Theatre Category 3 - Subject Specific Seminar

February 11 - February 13, 2022

Artistic information

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

Workshop Goals
The new DP theatre guide will be published by the IB in February 2022 for first teaching from September 2022 (for northern hemisphere schools) and January 2023 (for southern hemisphere schools).

We will be running the ‘Subject Specific Seminar’ or ‘SSS’ workshops for the new theatre course, both as face-to-face and online experiences. These bespoke one-off workshops will provide teachers with the understandings, tools and resources needed to adapt and develop their current courses in line with the revised DP theatre guide. SSS workshops will address all the key areas regarding teaching and learning, assessment tasks, and corresponding criteria using authentic student samples to ensure that teachers understand some of the subtleties in the change of criteria wording. Participants will examine the course guide with an eye for practical implementation, be clear about the reasons behind the revisions, and to be prepared to implement the changes to their own programmes. They will collaboratively generate useful resources and appropriate activities in a manner that supports the IB mission statement, the learner profile and other core areas of the Diploma Programme.

The IB recommends that all current DP Theatre teachers attend an SSS workshop, including those teachers who have participated in the recent DP theatre pilot process.

Please note
SSS workshops are not appropriate for teachers who are new to teaching DP theatre. These teachers should look to attend training at one of our new Category 1 workshops in the summer of 2022.

Theatre
All participants will attend one professional theatre performance. Details to be confirmed by December 2021.
