8th Grade Drama/Theater Lesson Plans

These 8th grade drama lesson plans are designed to complete the students' drama skill set and provide a strong foundation for those wishing to pursue drama at High School. They tackle more complex concepts such as status, hierarchy, symbolism and atmosphere through the use of more challenging texts and music.

Each lesson plan follows the same format, with warm up schemes, whole class and group activities as well as learning objectives and homework. Each unit ends with an assessment lesson so that students' progress can be measured.

The schemes of work are designed to link into other curricular activities using themes and backdrops common in 8th grade drama, theater and performing arts teaching.
