Drama class not like a typical class. Students are learning on their feet, interacting with others, making discoveries on their own rather than being “taught.”
This 13 page guide is the best resource you will find on the subject of maintaining a balance between order and chaos in drama class! This guide is not just for drama, either; it’s packed with effective, innovative solutions to the most common and the most difficult classroom management issues.
A certain degree of organized chaos is not only acceptable, but warranted in a successful drama learning experience. That said…there are times when the energy level of the class needs to shift. Sometimes students become highly energetic and lose their focus. Sometimes they are bored and not staying on task. Sometimes they are extremely self-conscious and act out so as not to appear vulnerable. When these instances arise, you’ll want to have some innovative strategies and powerful techniques that allow students to still be creative and expressive, but in a way that is not disruptive to the process.
