I am wondering what Web 2.0 tools can be integrated into the theatre classroom. This summer I have been working on teaching for film materials. Film acting teaching and film studies teaching seems to be a natural integration of Web 2.0! But what about theatre? It is sad that an art which is so collaborative can be seem to fit into this collaboration web world!
I developed a Comedy Writing Project that could be used in the theatre classroom, but it is really more of a film project. Comedy Writing Project covers the basics of comedy writing with special reference to the techniques of sketch shows and humor. The project examines the language, structures, and process of developing comedy material from concept to final draft. High school students, grouped by comedy style will collaborate in order to create several sketch comedy skits, which will be developed into film. A professional Improvisation group will evaluate the student work during the process. At the conclusion, the students will publish the sketch comedy skits. I would be happy to share if there are theatre interested!
