You need Emergency Lesson Plans. The unexpected comes up all the time.
This Emergency Lesson Plan Collection (30 lessons) will address all of your concerns and take into account all of your sub’s questions. Every Emergency Lesson Plan includes substitute instructions, handouts, and assessment suggestions.
The Drama Classroom Companion is filled with articles and exercises to build the skills needed for theatrical performance. It helps you nourish real world skills like creative thinking, critical thinking, collaboration, and communication.
This resource is designed to take students through the skills they need to perform a monologue - in steps. Instead of starting with the end goal – that two-minute piece – start at the beginning.
In this eBook you’ll find a four-lesson unit that will take students up the ladder toward that goal, and get students ready to tackle a longer monologue with confidence.
Use these scenes in your classroom for character study, scene work, substitute teachers, performance, Individual Event competitions, and any other way you can imagine.
Each scene comes from a published play (the complete play can be found on at theatrefolk.com) and is FREE for you to
print, copy, and distribute.
But wait there’s more! Each scene comes with:
• Close Reading Questions
• Staging Suggestions
• Character Development
30 scenes in total within this eBook!
