Whether you are a drama teacher looking to introduce your students to blocking and stage conventions for the first time or an English teacher hoping to help your students with in-class performances by giving them a basis in drama, this 30 minute activity is here to help you!
Through this activity and presentation, students will gain an understand for what blocking is, how to write down blocking in a script, and how to stand on stage. Students will get hands-on experience with blocking through using common blocking symbols and writing the blocking down in a script.
I work primarily out of Google Docs and .pdf files.
In this bundle you will find:
* A link to the Google Slide Presentation of Blocking and Stage Conventions (16 slides)
* A handout of common blocking symbols (1 page)
* A Blocking and Stage Conventions Practice Worksheet (3 pages)
PLEASE NOTE: If you have purchased my Mime and Body Language Unit, these activities are included in that unit. (The only things not included in that unit is the Blocking and Stage Conventions Practice Worksheet. That is only available here. )
For you, the busy drama teacher, all you have to do is print and teach! Everything is now prepped for you! Have fun and enjoy teaching the basics. Break a leg!
