This is a short, but very important Powerpoint that covers Greek theatre history.
We teach them only the basics (so we don't overwhelm them with history) that gives them an understanding of where history originated.
It goes through different key points about it, which we cover in grade 9 and 10:
-The Greeks and their love of theatre
-The Greek theatres themselves (the architecture)
-The types of plays
-The Chorus and actors
There's a matching handout on my site that has a fill-in-the-blank worksheet to make it easy for students to take notes on this subject.
