Introduction to Drama
Drama Unit | 6 x 50 Minute Lessons| Years 5 - 11
NOT JUST A BUNCH OF RANDOM DRAMA GAMES! This curriculum aligned drama unit has 6 x 50 minute detailed lesson plans (can be easily taught in double periods) to give students a solid start in their drama studies. The unit can also be used as a refresher to go back and cement foundation drama skills. It covers some basic and necessary drama techniques for successful study in drama.
 
This unit does include drama games but it is not a collection of random drama games thrown together to make a unit - it is a considered collection of drama games and curriculum aligned learning activities sequenced to teach foundation drama skills. The lessons include short homework tasks.
 
Note on timing: you may like to take some of the activities slower than indicated. I have jam packed the unit on purpose (with options for extension activities) so you have plenty of options for dynamic classes.
