As well as learning a play or text itself, it is important students understand how best to take in this information. In this class, students will be provided with a succinct session on how to create a study guide that breaks down any play, text, piece of drama. This class will help students from Years 7 to 11 summarise elements like characters, themes, key quotes and context and by putting in time at this stage, will allow them to save considerable time in the future.
