Looking for a project to use in order to develop management skills and student leadership? This project may be used over a standard nine-week instructional session. Beginning drama students work on components that showcase their developing skills in reading, observation, direction, writing, and creativity. This project also gives beginning students the chance to work with advanced level students who direct them in a production.
The unit includes descriptions for earning grades of A, B, or C as well as a rubric and suggested titles for play reading. Opportunities for extra credit and alternate assignments for students are also included in some sections of the project. Through this project, as well as collaboration with the advanced theater class, students work on time management skills while also choosing elements to complete that best represent their abilities.
