Connecting to Your Teaching
Reflect on Your Practice
- Does your school’s culture support collaborative, integrated units? If so, how? If not, why not?
- How do you make distant historical time periods real for students?
- What obstacles, if any, make it hard for you and your colleagues to use drama in teaching across disciplines? How might these be overcome?
- Could studying a play in-depth help your students understand and assimilate new information and material? What plays might be good candidates?
Adaptations / Extensions to Consider
Scale it back: Choose one scene from a play to enact; or choose a one-act play. Work within your classroom or in partnership with one other teacher.
Role Play: Have students role-play characters from books or history. Have students write original scripts to perform.
Take a field trip: Visit a local theatre company or work with a drama troupe that can come to your school.
NEXT: Additional Resources, including unit materials that teachers used.
