Drama & Theater Resources for Teachers

Incorporate the study of drama and theater in your classroom, whether you're teaching literature, science, or social studies. We have printables, lessons, and activities all about this fascinating topic. We have teacher's guides to Shakespeare's plays, activities to connect drama with reading Harry Potter books, printables to encourage students to keep journals as they read plays, lessons connecting science and social studies to the subject of drama, Readers Theater activities and lesson plans, and much more! Your students will enjoy studying plays when they can act them out and complete extension activities with them. Reciting plays not only improves students' reading skills, but their public speaking skills as well. There are a lot of benefits to the use of drama in the classroom.
