Welcome to Drama Toolkit

This Drama Toolkit provides K-12 teachers with high-quality teaching resources that bring the excitement of the theater into the classroom. You’ll find lesson plans, idea cards, glossaries, and many special features. Some of these, such as Kentuckians in Theater, Tour of the Stage, and Will Power, are designed for students as well as teachers.

The Boxed Toolkit
These online resources augment those included in the boxed Drama Arts Toolkit. Now in its second edition, this toolkit includes two DVDs offering nearly 80 video segments of performance excerpts, artist interviews, and historical and cultural information, including a set of segments on Japanese Kabuki theater. The 2nd Edition Drama Arts Toolkit binder includes nearly 600 pages of lesson plans, glossaries, informational resources, and teaching tips. The Drama Toolkit also includes idea cards, a poster, and the CD-ROM From Page to Stage, which explores the collaborative process of theater though video, audio interviews, and images.

“What is drama but life with the dull bits cut out?” – Alfred Hitchcock
