5B. English through Drama

ColWrit 5B. English through Drama

3 units

One of the best ways to work on your pronunciation is to perform plays.  And one of the best ways to build vocabulary is to read and write — a lot.  Students will use plays, film, television, current events, controversial issues, and their own experience as source material to write and perform plays. Course activities include character, storyline, and dialogue exercises, as well as close reading, analysis, and written responses to academic readings. This is an excellent opportunity for students to learn academic conventions for writing, improve their critical/analytical reading skills, and enhance their oral skills. Suitable for intermediate through advanced ESL students.

Please note, students enrolling in Colwrit/ESL 5B course must take an online placement exam.
