The theater class has always promoted skills and lessons that are based on the foundation of social and emotional learning (SEL). Self-awareness, self-management, social awarenessrelationship skills and responsible decision making provide students with important life skills: empathy, collaboration, communication, developing and maintaining relationships, time management and more.
Each theater class already incorporates many of these concepts into daily lessons through critical thinking exercises, character analysis projects, collaborative activities, problem-solving challenges, and self-reflection. If you are looking for new ways to incorporate SEL into the classroom, we have a selection of fantastic pieces for production or classroom study.
These pieces are an excellent activity for the class project and can be used to introduce SEL to your students or to deepen their understanding and awareness. In addition, many of them come with Free classroom study guidescomplete with pre-read questions and activities, careful reading analysis and post-reading activities, to provide an in-depth theatrical learning experience.
