Tired of giving lectures on complex historical topics? Do you have high energy students looking for an outlet? At Mano Koa Enterprises, we have developed an interactive lesson strategy which enables students (especially the high energy ones) to do the teaching for you with Historical Theater: a hands-on bodily kinesthetic activity which expresses complex gender, racial and socioeconomic perspectives during an historical time period.
Historical Theater activities provide classrooms with an active and engaging way to tackle issues in the past while creating memories that students will carry on years beyond the class the class. As a bonus, AP US History students sharpen their Point of View skills on the Document Based Question portion of the test because they are able to provide different points of view to the presented authors.
This product contains a lesson plan, PowerPoint, Historical Theater Scripts for the following historical figures:

This exact lesson plan is featured in the "Fun with U.S. History Volume 4" complete unit (along with many more historical theaters on Hawaiian Annexation, Organized Labor and World War II) and an upcoming "Historical Theater Compendium" which will offer historical theaters for topics spanning 1620 to 2000.
Have fun and break a leg!
