A month ago (July 2002) I placed the super-counter on my Film-Forth site and now I have some idea, how people get to my pages. Most of the searches (the biggest traffic generator) are rather my subjects-related (maybe the search engines are geeting better), and most of the queries are elementary -- "comical monologues" or something like that. My advise is simple; go to the library -- there are so many books that can answer your prayers (maybe too many). I even placed the htmlgears with the links straight to Amazon (still believe that it's better, if you buy plays, not the collections of scenes or monologues). The bottom line: the Internet is not for that kind of search (very likely you will get to sites that want to sell you something). The Web is a depository of specific information; in my case -- acting, directing, drama, theory + film. And -- my writing. If you are looking for some general information, I am sure that you are wasting your time. Yes, I have reading lists and dictionaries, but those pages are not the best, you can find much better ones on the Web.
In short, if after a few clicks, you can't find what you are looking for, go for the FAQ page (each directory has it) and see what is not here!
8+ ways to navigate & 5 ways to interact:

Webtextbooks? I am working on it! I will be posting the students papers and the transcripts of my lectures (before I will teach the Playscript Analysis again).

Both classes use THEMES directory (Family, Death, Self, Generations and so on.)
Major plays are online @ PLAYS directory!
Main scripts I teach have their own directories in SHOWS!
Theatre Books are in BOOKS (acting, drama, directing and etc.)
Drama clsses use the same groups.yahoo.com/group/dramlit eGroup/List (see my calendar or Theatre UAF, what I teach/direct).
I hope I will make the pages for IS (Independent Study) for students I have in 2005...
The writing component doesn't have support webpages yet (First UAF Playwright Fest 2005-2006, more details later).

No questions without search of the webpages and books first.
Use the guessbooks for comments.
See "service pages" -- students, glossary, books, appendix and etc.
Read the plays!

2004: THR215 DramLitActors, Producers, and Directors: U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics [ Nature of the Work | Working Conditions | Employment | Training, Other Qualifications, and Advancement | Job Outlook | Earnings | Related Occupations | Sources of Additional Information ]This is the old page (first generation) and I do not know how usefull it could be for you...Folks, I am in trouble! I am chasing my own shadow! I started my webpages to be better prepared for my classes (I'm very disorganized man). Web? Great! Much easier to find the notes, lists, tests and etc. And I thought it's better for my (live) students...
The structure of drama pages:
script.vtheatre.netOf course, there are other drama related pages and directories (like PLAYS (online). Also, recommend to read SHOWS directories pages (character, plot and etc. analysis).
215 Dramlit + 413 Playscript
Are you in my (live) class or not, it rather simple: read the play (and the critical articles), read the web pages on author (Shakespeare, Chekhov and so on) and the topics, subjects discussed (realism, modernism, absurd)... and write your paper.
To make it easier, I require it do in stages: "200 words" after you read the play (each script assigned). Outline (midterm and final paper), first draft and final draft.
Post it all on the DramLit Forum -- and get the feedback from the List (dive yours to their posts).
We do one title a week; don't get behind. THR413 Playscript Analysis and THR215 Dramatic Literature are the master syllabi with the links to the updated class pages, according to the year I teach it.
Alert: the subtiles of drama classes -- "for actors and directors" (my majors). Without your own (personal) interpretation of each play we read, it's difficult for you to get "A" (you think about it as if you are to act or direct this script -- it has to be YOUR take!)
Fall 2003 (new): this time the last part of the course is writing your own scene (start at the second week of classes). Maybe not for a grade.
In the right table: evaluation of UAF shows (you must see them, free tickets, if in class) -- and write a review. REQUIRED!
... Main Stage + Winter Shorts (student-directed)
Soon I was doing everything online!
I can enter my pages from any computer in any city and print everything!
How about the people, who also enter my pages from anywhere in the world?
I forgot about this "Method Acting" principle -- "Private in Public"...
The "public" part. As if I am on stage all the time.
What about the unfinished pages? Or thoughts? Spelling? Errors? What do I have to do now? I don't have backups, I don't even print all new pages anymore! I keep writing... or typing.
Well, I had to make those FAQ pages in every directory not to feel guilty, to help you to follow the logic, yes, you, my cyber-students. Oh, no! Of course, I had no idea how many of you are out there!
FAQ is a kind of guide-page. What I have and what isn't here.
... Oh, how easy was my life before I became this beast "Webmaster"!
Too late now. I am doomed. I am finished. Done... I am the shadow of myself, running in front of me...First, see other FAQ pages!

Drama classes are required for acting and directing and all students end using this directory. Some analysis pages are in act.vtheatre.net and direct.vtheatre.net: monologues and scenes. Some notes are in shows.vtheatre.net!It all depends on what do you need drama analysis for! Acting, directing, design? Theatre is a practical art, the true secret is in applications! Of course, there are the literature aspects of drama, but this zone belongs more to English departments and study of criticism.

I do not have much on screen writing -- go to Script page in Film Directing! As always, the secret for good grades is the homework! (new page, left)
Read the plays in advance, read them twice, take notes, post the notes on DRAMLIT eList, write your "200 words" after each title (do it on time). Present (oral) your ideas for midterm paper (write the outline), ask questions, give your feedback to others... and you will be okay.
Think... it's a special subject.
