Methods of Teaching Theatre: A Teacher Toolkit

There are a lot of challenges that come in the first few years of teaching, especially for new theatre teachers, including non-traditional teaching spaces, entire classes of students who have no interest in theatre, a lack of a standard curriculum, and creating objective assessments for subjective materials, just to name a few. This book will help you anticipate the preparations you will need to address before a student ever walks into your classroom and the kind of philosophical questions you need to ask, and answer, as you begin your teaching career.

This toolkit examines four fundamental building blocks of teaching: Classroom Setup, Classroom Management, Lesson Planning, and Assessment. It also provides you with tools and activities that will help you integrate these fundamentals into a drama classroom. If you are a new teacher, or are still in your teacher training, these tools will provide you with a lot of supplemental, practical information that will help you prepare for your first few years of teaching.

Return, Restore, Rebound: Post-Pandemic Resource eBook

The pandemic that began in 2020 fundamentally changed classroom environments around the world. Something as simple as seeing students in your class was no longer guaranteed. In addition, an unprecedented “digital divide” was created between teachers and their students, making it difficult to establish a connection and engage.

This lack of interpersonal connection was especially detrimental to the drama classroom. Theatre teachers emphasize interpersonal interactions to help teach the basic concepts of drama, from listening skills to creative problem solving all the way to building ensemble and empathy. These kinds of social and emotional learning qualities are the foundations of the theatre curriculum. This is why it is so important to re-establish these skills when teachers and students return to classroom teaching.

This resource anticipates the challenges that await you when you return to full-time, face-to face teaching. It is designed to provide you with materials you will need to return, restore, and rebound in your teaching space, curriculum, and relationship with your students.

Impowerment Improv eBook

The exercises in this resource are designed to create a safe environment in which students can go beyond their old patterns to take risks, embrace failure, be more confident, and be aware of the effects of their word choice. If you already use improv in the classroom, some of the exercises will seem familiar. That’s on purpose; they’re good introductory exercises that lend themselves well to these concepts.

Improv gives you the opportunity to draw attention to these important concepts and talk about them. You can go beyond playing games and take improv to the next level.

Improv Games with Purpose

When Improv has a purpose, it’s a win for everyone. You’re teaching skills, and students are learning how to work together rather than go for the individual laugh.

But not only do you have all these games in one place, there is an identified purpose for each game, feedback suggestions and questions, game variations, teaching tips, side coaching tips, entry prompts, exit slip questions, and more! It’s about giving every single one of your students the best improv experience from the tentative to the outgoing.
