    Audra McDonald Biography and One Pager Assignment


    20% DISCOUNT! Looking to engage your reluctant students? Try radio theater! Here are 5 radio theater plays adapted specifically for the classroom, PLUS a unit on radio theater. Learn from a theater education expert, me! Teaching with radio theater helps students strengthen their reading, speaking and listening skills while working cooperatively. A teacher can use the unit separately of the plays if they have another radio play they'd rather produce. Certain scripts are more suited for younger students than others, but the teacher is the best person to know what is most appropriate for their students.

    This TEN DAY unit, nearly 30 pages in length, is suitable for middle and high school drama classes and includes:

    • a lesson on the history of radio theater

    • information about Foley engineers

    • three links to video clips of Foleys

    • student created sound effect project assignment

    • five links to radio play performances (some vintage and some recent)

    • a lesson in writing and producing radio commercials

    • links to four commercials and two acting exercises focused on sound effects

    • procedure plan to follow throughout the unit

    • teacher’s questions--what I say and how I say it!

    • a sound effects quiz which enriches the learning

    • a student group example of a radio commercial

    • trivia about radio theater stars

    • a page demonstrating how to direct a radio play

    • a floor plan for blocking and an explanation of the floor plan

    • a page advising what certain stage directions mean which are specific to radio plays

    The radio plays products include:

    • note for the teacher/director
    • brief biographies on the author of the books or stories-- H.G. Welles, William Clark Russell, Edgar Allen Poe and Oscar Wilde
    • radio play, including sound and music cues
    • The Frozen Pirate contains an original song reminiscent of a sea shanty of the time period & sound byte

    These plays are royalty free! Perform them for the school, a parent open house or the end of the semester. You can spend one day studying radio theater or several days. Either way, they are ready to go--just copy and start in on the fun!

    Time Tested by Veteran Award Winning Teacher of 38 years, these plays are winners!
