Teaching methodologies (including evalution)

Theoretical-Practical classes where the conjunction of the active and expositive methods is used by resorting to several strategies: Group-works, visits to exhibitions, debates, shows, documentaries visualization and debate, movies and video-grams. Used strategies and resources: Exhibitions, debates, documental analysis, individual and group-work, simulations, experiments and essays. The evaluation of the curricular unit is continuous and stems from the arithmetic consideration and individual practical works. The portfolios will integrate the individual research made by the students as well as their own critical reflections that will be constant throughout the learning process (17,5%+17,5%=35%). The group-works will consist (65% = 32.5%+32.5%) in the adaptation of a narrative to a dramatic text by creating and using the dramatic and cinematographic resources deemed necessary and also a choreograpic group-work.
