Educators in all Arkansas public and private schools as well as all Arkansas institutions of higher education and all state directors of gifted programs are invited to apply for faculty positions.
Area I Faculty will collaborate with the Area I Coordinator in developing curriculum in their field of special talent according to the general framework described below:
Drama is one of our oldest art forms, yet it continually evolves in order to meet the needs of our changing society. Students will learn to analyze and create dramatic works that speak to the audiences of today. They will learn about dramatic principles through the analysis of 21st Century dramatic texts, through the practice of performance skills, and through the writing of scripts. This course will touch on a variety of skills relevant to today's theatre-makers including acting, directing, playwriting, and design. Students will also have the opportunity to produce community performance pieces using film, audio, improvisation, and old-school circus skills such as clowning and puppetry.
Applicants should submit an application cover sheet, a letter of application describing qualifications, curriculum ideas, and teaching style, a current curriculum vitae, and a list of three references. The application deadline is November 1, 2022.
