Help for new Drama Teachers - teaching theatre for the first time

I would like to provide some extra help to Drama Teachers instructing theatre and acting for the first time.

All these are free resources:

Improv is a great way to start out:  (Complete Improv Workshop and MadScripts are really good)

Next, students could do something similar to the Free Online Acting School:

Then you can produce a play with the students. Here is a process list for producing a play:

Plays like "The Weird, Wild and Wonderful Days of School" and "Between Good and Evil" might be good ones to start with.  They are a series of scenes and would give the students a way to work in small groups on each scene.  Or doing a series of short plays can work well too.  

Weird, Wild and Wonderful Days of School: 

Here are the requirements for producing a play by D. M. Larson from Freedrama for FREE!  It's always nice to have free plays to perform as a new drama teacher.

Please let me know if you have any questions in the comments below and I will be happy to help.


One more resource (not free, but low cost)... I also have a low cost class called "Drama Games" available for college credit if you'd like to take this and get some more help as well.
