Good Answers Guides 2019 to 2021

DramaWest is delighted to announce the release of our Practical and Written Good Answers Guides. We have made the exciting move to go digital! Below you will find information on both of our 2021 Guides, together with details on our 2019 and 2020 Guides, and how to order them all.

Written Good Answers Guide 2021
This guide is designed to assist teachers and students alike in preparing for the Written Drama ATAR Examination. Good Answer samples from the 2020 Drama ATAR Course Examination have been annotated to identify key features in successful responses. Also included are activities designed to extend your knowledge and guide the application of skills for future written examinations.

Practical Good Answers Guide 2021
Teachers and students are able to view three candidates as they engage with the Practical Drama ATAR Examination. Each video contains a complete performance with detailed commentary and feedback. This guide also includes interviews with the candidates on how they best prepared for their practical examination. Annotations and notes have been developed by experienced Drama educators with clear advice to teachers and students about making the most of these performance materials.

Please be aware that DramaWest Incorporated holds full copyright for these materials. We ask that you purchase additional copies of the Practical GAG should you wish to share them further. Breaking copyright will make these materials near impossible to produce in the future. It is small organisations like DramaWest Incorporated who suffer the greatest impact.
