Drama Lesson Plan Vault
The amount of support and interaction offered is fantastic!
Casey Harling, Bahrain
“I was recently promoted to Lead Teacher of Drama in a Junior School in Bahrain, which requires me to do planning for four year groups, an hour a week, and initially I had no clue how to approach it. I have developed such fun lessons that are so rewarding to teach. This course is a key part of my professional development review at school and I am so proud to see the progress I have made as a teacher.”
“The Inspiring Drama Teacher provides you with everything you need to know to teach Drama. Whether you are teaching Drama full time, a form teacher using drama to better your lessons, or running a drama club, this is a community to be a part of. It is by far the best course I have come across. Not once did I feel lost, or confused or overwhelmed. The amount of support and interaction offered is fantastic!”

Sanjana Kapoor, Freelance Theatre Practitioner
“I love the way you have designed this valuable sharing experience in your on-line course The Inspiring Drama Teacher. I am deeply interested in understanding how to cultivate school teachers into becoming drama teachers in their schools. I live and work in India and more and more schools are getting interested in drama in their classrooms. I’m thrilled that so many teachers responded to my gentle nudge to attend this course. Thank you for all your precious books and wonderful sharing.”

The Merchant Ivory film, Shakespeare Wallah, was loosely based on her family, which starred her father and her aunt, actress Felicity Kendal.

@MissStalkerBX is currently participating in ‘The Inspiring Drama Teacher’ training by @dramaresource 🎭🤩 This week’s challenge was to create different objects as a group in 10 seconds!

As part of the Inspired Drama Teacher training, we tried “I can’t remember what happens next” and whooshing stories 🎭 We LOVED adding onto each other’s tales, using lots of adjectives from our writing! They liked jumping into the stories and acting them out too 🥰 @dramaresource pic.twitter.com/bOchwXSWtK— MissStalkerP5S (@MissStalkerBX) October 6, 2021
