Self-Management in the Drama Classroom

Self-Management in the Drama Classroom

by Kerry Hishon and Lindsay Price

Self-Management in the Drama Classroom offers a variety of ways to frame self-management with drama-classroom-specific articles, exercises, and an entire Self-Management Playwriting Unit where the focus is not on the final product but the demonstration of self-management skills along the way.

Self-management is an excellent skill for students to develop. It includes setting goals, strategizing, demonstrating initiative, personal responsibility, time management, coping strategies, organization and more.

Student success in and out of the classroom can be directly measured by their ability to self-manage.

Not only does this resource provide a complete Self-Management Playwriting Unit, it provides self-management articles and exercises specific to the drama classroom.
