Lesson Plans

Name Description
Constructive Criticism, Evaluation, and Feedback:

Students will be filmed while doing a performance in class. They will then watch the video and evaluate their individual performances, as well as the class performance as an ensemble.

Shifting Objects of Attention:

One of the primary ways students can maintain their focus and concentration on stage is using the shifting of object of attention within a scene to stay in truthful moments while sustaining a character. In this lesson, the students will pre-assess how they focus in real life, students will be introduced to examples of people using object of attention. Students will use stream of conscious speaking/writing to describe the object of attention shifting in their pre-rehearsed scene. 

Unlocking the Playwright Within: Statues:

The students will explore playwriting that encourages creative risk-taking. Throughout the unit, students learn to develop ideas for writing plays.
