About This Course
Created by fellow educators, this course was constructed to assist teachers with designing and implementing performing arts lesson plans for students in drama, communications, and other related classes. To gain a better understanding of the performing arts, most of the chapters review major plays to discuss such topics as themes, summaries, textual analyses, plot, character analysis, and more. Both our video and text-based lessons can be reviewed in under 10 minutes, making it easier for performing arts teachers to get the information they need to prepare for upcoming classes.
How It Works
The short text and video lessons in the chapters offer instructional insight that you can use in the classroom. The chapters often contain pre-made lesson plans as well as other lessons you can use to supplement your curriculum. Both you and your students can access all of our teacher resources through Internet-ready devices. This course offers the following:
- Captivating video lessons created to keep your students' attention as they learn about performing arts topics
- Helpful video timeline features that let you quickly move between topics
- Printable materials, including lesson transcripts and lesson plans to keep teachers organized
- Assessment tools, such as lesson quizzes that measure how much information students have retained
How It Helps
- Major timesaver: Instead of endless Google searches or searching through filing cabinets, use your time more effectively by using our teacher resources as your starting point.
- Improves student knowledge: As many of our lessons can be used as supplemental information, you can expand your students' knowledge in the classroom, or assign these lessons as extra reading for out-of-class learning.
- Upholds curriculum standards: Our instructors have years of experience, so you can be certain that the courses they create are built to enforce the high standards you strive to maintain.
