If you’re a drama teacher then you have a strong passion for the stage and teaching your students an appreciation for the arts. Some students may not take our classes as seriously as they do a math or a science class but once they get into the semester they’re sure to enjoy drama class more than any other subject area. The key for us as teachers of drama is to make sure that our students get excited about our subject matter and for us to erase the stigma that drama is a “joke” class. Here are a few tips to keep in mind as you get geared up for another school year:
- Start each class with a warm-up. In order to get your students focused for the day’s class it’s a good idea to start with a warm-up. If you have a more rambunctious class then start with something that requires them to follow instructions. Pick something that correlates with the day’s subject matter as well. This will help get the kids focused on the task at hand.
- Set clear rules. Some students have trouble taking serious subjects seriously. What we mean here is that many students will act irresponsible if a touchy subject is being analyzed. If you’re introducing a play that has mature themes then it’s always a good idea to discuss with your class how we handle such subjects before introducing the play.
- Treat the subject matter with seriousness. Students will sometimes think that drama class is “play time.” This happens even with older students. It’s imperative that kids don’t simply blow off your class. Remind them that school rules and policies are in effect in your classroom and that they’re being graded. When students are reminded of this last fact they are usually quick to get back on task.
- Maintain a scene’s integrity. If you’re teaching a lesson where the students are improvising it’s important that you foster their creativity while maintaining the integrity of the class. Improvisation is a great way to get the creative juices flowing but you need to instill the mindset in your students that this isn’t a game but a serious activity.
- Stick to your lesson plan. When you create your lesson plan for the day it’s important that you clearly identify the academic objectives you intend to reach that day. Make sure that you’re not eliminating the fun from drama. While you need to keep students on task be sure to keep in mind that you’re not teaching chemistry and it’s perfectly okay to have a great time in drama class!
