Rationale:
In this Orientation to Drama unit I will focus on building relationships with my students and my
students building relationships with classmates. The Orientation unit is the most important unit
of the course because it is going to determine the design for rest of the semester. This unit will
help to create a safe place for future units and help make students feel comfortable expressing
themselves. This unit will also give students the chance to build their confidence by starting with
things that students can and will do and then introducing different activities to build on their
skills. This unit will also help me to build the classroom community and set my expectations for
the students.

Hello, my name is Miss. Schmitke I am a student from the
University of Lethbridge, where I have been going to school to
2 minutes receive my education as a Drama teacher. My interests in drama
are Technical Theatre. Today we are going to be starting the unit
on Movement. I am very excited about this unit because
movement is so important in Drama and is one of the
foundational ideas in Dramatic Art (if students seem nervous talk
longer).

Body (Activities) Teacher Actions:


I will instruct students on how to participate in the activities
below and model the game with a student.

Student Actions:
Students will be participating by moving around, listening and
following direct instructions. Students should participate at
appropriate times.

Circle Share
• Students should already be in circle, if not ask them to join you in
10 Minutes circle.
• I will demonstrate what I expect from the students by stating my
name (Miss. Schmitke) and then sharing something about theatre
or drama that interests me (Costumes). I will say I love creating
character and making the costumes that I see the particular
character in.
• Students will then go around the circle introducing themselves
and sharing one thing that interests them in either theatre or
drama.
• I will take notes to keep in mind what student’s interests are and
what is exciting to them about drama.

Name Game
22 minutes • I will explain the activity little by little as students are playing.
• Students will firstly introduce themselves to the people directly
beside them, I will then choose three people to tell me how their
neighbors are.
• We will do this for 3 rounds. After the third round I will ask
students to introduce themselves to 4 people (two on each side).
This will be increased every time until students are going around
the circle saying everyone’s names.

Partner Introductions
15 minutes • In pairs, students have two minutes to learn as much as possible
about their partner. At a signal from the teacher a circle is formed
and each person in turn introduces his or her partner and tells
one or two things about him/her.

7
• I will demonstrate this by introducing myself. I will also verbally
tell students questions that they could use to get to know their
partner better.
• When students hear the three claps, they will get back into a
circle and I will have students start to introduce their peers.

Classroom Rules
• I will initiate discussion with students about what they think the
10 minutes classroom rules should be. I will take students ideas and write
them down and create a poster board with the classroom rules
that we decide as a class. Along with what students should be
doing while another student is performing.

5 Minutes class? (This will be written on the board and discussed as a closure to
the class.)

Introduction/Set Ask students to join you and form a circle on the floor.
For Attendance: Ask students a question. If you could be any

Give brief introduction about yourself and why you are teaching.

Hello, my name is Miss. Schmitke I am a student from the


University of Lethbridge, where I have been going to school to
1 minutes receive my education as a Drama teacher. Today we are going to
be continuing getting to know our classmates better through a
series of games. I am very excited about today because we have
some really fun activities! (if students seem nervous talk longer).

Body (Activities) Teacher Actions:


I will instruct students on how to participate in the activities
below and model the game with a student.

Student Actions:
Students will be participating by moving around, listening and
following direct instructions. Students should participate at
appropriate times.

Catch My Name
• Instruct students to get into a circle or stay in circle if they are
8 minutes already in a circle.
• Students will toss a bean bag to each other by first making eye
contact with that person. Second saying their name and the
person that they are throwing to name (i.e. Jane to John). Once
student has received and thrown the bean bag, they will fold their
arms.
• This activity will help students review each other’s names.

Name Tag
• Students will stand in a circle with one volunteer in the middle.
• Participates that are not in the middle of the circle will stick out
9 minutes their right hand. I will tell one person to say the name of another
participant in the circle. If the person that is in the middle gets to
that person and tags their hand, tagged person is it. If the person
whose name was said, says another person’s name then they are
safe from being tagged.

Human Scavenger Hunt:


• Students will be given a bingo sheet with 20 different
characteristics that students could have in the class room.
12 minutes Students will find classmates who fit the descriptions and have
them sign besides the description. One person can only sign
someone else sheet once. (This will encourage the class to
interact with each other more).

10
I will assist students and make myself available and participate
as well. Once I can see that students are starting to finish up, I
will ask students to get into a circle, join hands, take a step back,
drop hands and sit down. I will then move onto the next activity.
Change Places If…
• Have students grab chairs and place them into a circle.
10 minutes • Take away one chair so there is one less chair than people. I will
start in the middle.
• Explain the game when the person in the middle says change
places if you have brown hair, and then the people that have
brown hair would have to get up and change seats and the person
that is left standing would have to come up with the next
question.
Two Truths, One Lie

• I will number students off into groups of 5.
10 minutes • Students will then situate themselves around the classroom.
• I will then give student 2 minutes to come up with two truths and
a lie about themselves. Students will be given 8 minutes to share
their 2 truths and a lie with their group. After student is finished
sharing the other students can guess which one the lie is.
Check in
• Give students a chance to talk about how they are feeling in the
10 minutes class and how they are feeling about their new semester.

Closure
Big Question of the Day:
5 Minutes What makes us trust someone? What does it take to be trust worthy?
(Write this question on the board)

individually or in small groups (time dependent).
