Mrs. Lisa Cook

Textbook

EVERYTHING ABOUT THEATRE! By Robert L. Lee, Meriwether Publishing Ltd, © 1996

 

Format of Class

While primarily a hands-on, on-your-feet class, expect daily assignments, projects, papers, and both solo and group performances.  Usually, I give you enough class time to complete assignments, but you will have homework occasionally. 

 

Grades

Each marking period, you start fresh with a 100%.  It’s up to you to maintain that grade.

 

Marking periods are broken down as follows:

30% Projects, Performances

25% Quizzes, Tests

25% Homework, Small Assignments

20% Participation

 

Daily homework and classroom updates can be found at Mrs. Cook’s teacher school website.
