Research and write projects are a great way to demonstrate comprehension by taking information in one form and applying it to another. The Research & Write Toolkit is a great way to help students make their research theatrical.
The digital edition of Research & Write Toolkit is available for free for Drama Teacher Academy members. Visit DramaTeacherAcademy.com to download or learn more about becoming a Drama Teacher Academy member.
Researching a topic and applying that research in a theatrical way, like writing a play, is a fantastic drama classroom project. The most common issue with these projects is turning research into a theatrical final product. A play is not a textbook or an informational brochure. The theatricality must come first. But it takes practice to turn information into theatre.
Use this toolkit to give students the opportunity to practice turning information into theatrical action.
