WELCOME TO THE WICKED EDUCATION WEBSITE
WICKED is a wonderful way to introduce students of all ages to theatre. It can be used as a resource when teaching a number of subjects in the Western Australian Curriculum, including:
- Technology and Enterprise (Design)
- Theatre for International Baccalaureate
- Visual Arts
- VET Entertainment
WICKED addresses values of the Western Australian Curriculum Framework including:
- Self-acceptance and respect of self;
- Respect and concern for others and their rights; and
- Social and Civic Responsibility
Ideas have been provided which can be used as stimulus for discussions about topics such as friendship, accepting differences, personal values and the consequence of choices. Essential themes such as stereotyping, prejudice and moral understanding can be adapted into many subjects in ‘student friendly’ ways.
Lesson plans provide suggestions as to how the resource materials within the website can be used.
There are a number of excellent educational packages and extensive background materials already in existence for WICKED. These notes draw freely from their structure and inspiration, whilst attempting to limit blatant plagiarism. Three primary sources of ideas were the WICKED Active Learning resources from the UK, Stage Notes: A Field Guide for Teachers from Camp Broadway in the USA and the original Active Learning Teacher Booklet written by the late Rob Galbraith for the Australian premiere season.
Accompanying the original material, there is an amalgam of contributions to date deriving from the aforementioned study notes, newspaper and magazine articles, websites and related publications such as The Grimmerie. Script excerpts from WICKED are by Stephen Schwartz (Music and Lyrics) and Winnie Holzman (Book). Some leeway has been assumed because this is not an academic study, the notes are not for sale and the package is designed solely for the benefit of teachers and students. Sincere apologies are offered to anyone who feels that their work has been taken out of context or used without appropriate attribution. The intention has not been to claim unwarranted credit, but simply to increase the educational benefit for teachers and students attending a performance of WICKED.
These WICKED Education Materials have been written by David Perry and adapted by Lisa Jinga, Adrianne Jones and Lorraine Scorer with assistance from the WICKED Company.
