Product Description
This serves as an anticipatory set for the first day of class for a middle school / high school drama class for students who may have very little background on drama/theatre. I use it as a pre-test for the first day to see what they know about drama, and then use the same form on the last day of the course to see how their opinions about drama have changed (omitting #8,9).

On the first day we discuss each question, with partners or in small groups first, and then as a whole group. As a teacher this helps me to modify my curriculum based on students' interests. It was incredibly valuable to me as an urban teacher of students with no dramatic background, because they came into the class with a poor attitude and misconceptions about what we would be doing. Drama became a favorite class for most, and comparing the pre-test to post-test was so rewarding to see how much the kids loved drama by the end of the course. Their favorite actors also often changed because they began to appreciate more about drama and branch away from liking actors who used a lot of bathroom humor.

It was also great data to show my administrators. They saw such growth in the students as individuals after taking the course.
