My first nine weeks of Theater I alternates between basic performance technique and the history of Greek and Roman Theater. I specifically ask students to compare and contrast the styles of theater and draw connections to the values of the Ancient Greek and Roman people. We read Antigone
along with this history, make masks in class, and perform scenes from the play.
This is a bundle of my Greek and Roman theater history resources from the foundations of theater in Ancient Greece to the end of the Roman Empire. It is intended for introductory theater classes.
✓ Ancient Greek Theater Presentations and Quiz
✓ Ancient Greek Theater Timeline Interactive Notebook Pages
✓ Antigone Anticipation Guide
✓ Aristotle Poetics Interactive Notebook Pages
✓ Roman Theater Notes Presentations and Quiz
✓ Comparing Ancient Theater Handout
These resources work together as a great first nine weeks of theater history for an introduction theater class. Presentations all include I CAN
statements that can be collected as a study guide for the included quizzes.
