This Self-Learning Module (SLM) is prepared so that you, our dear learners, can continue your studies and learn while at home. Activities, questions, directions, exercises, and discussions are carefully stated for you to understand each lesson.
Each SLM is composed of different parts. Each part shall guide you step-by-step as you discover and understand the lesson prepared for you.
Pre-tests are provided to measure your prior knowledge on lessons in each SLM. This will tell you if you need to proceed on completing this module or if you need to ask your facilitator or your teacher’s assistance for better understanding of the lesson. At the end of each module, you need to answer the post-test to self-check your learning. Answer keys are provided for each activity and test. We trust that you will be honest in using these.
Please use this module with care. Do not put unnecessary marks on any part of this SLM. Use a separate sheet of paper in answering the exercises and tests. And read the instructions carefully before performing each task.
At the end of this module, you should be able to:
1. Identify selected theatrical forms from different art periods.
2. Research on the history of the theatrical forms and their evolution.
Covid-19 got the majority quarantined at home. This made movie marathon a trend, aside from the online market and the “tiktok” challenges of course. Movies entertain us, but, do you know that theater was already around before them? Today we are going to identify the different theatrical forms that evolved throughout the different periods in history. Later you will be asked to research about the history & evolution of theater forms to further your knowledge and to help spice up our next discussion about it.
