Curriculum area resources support teachers to implement the curriculum. Resources are organised by 'Planning resources', 'Teaching resources' and 'Assessment resources'.

Overview of Drama

Learning in Drama involves students making, performing, analysing and responding, drawing on human experience as a source of ideas. Students engage with the knowledge of drama, developing skills, applying techniques and processes and using materials and technologies to explore a range of forms, styles and contexts.

Through Drama, students learn to reflect critically on their own experiences and responses and further their own aesthetic knowledge and preferences. They learn with growing sophistication to express and communicate experiences through and about drama.

The Drama curriculum website  can be accessed via the Victorian Curriculum F–10 website

To learn about key components of the Drama curriculum, view the presentation Introducing Drama (pptx - 313.1kb).
