IB Theatre - Research Presentation (first assessment 2024): Theatre Journal

This guide provides resources for the Research Presentation external assessment task for IB Theatre (first assessment 2024).

Role of the Theatre Journal

Writing in journal - Britannica ImageQuestStudents need to log their practical research and experimentation in their theatre journals as it provides key evidence to substantiate the basis of the understandings they have developed.

A visual record of these explorations (including photographs and video recordings) or a live re-creation of these moments of research can act as significant pieces of evidence in this task and can be attributed as research sources. This is particularly important when exploring performance conventions or experimenting with traditional performance material (TPM).

The journal should also be used to capture the student's discoveries, reflections, challenges, and insights regarding their understanding of world theatre.
