Elements of Drama Bundle

Elements of Drama Bundle

Can be used for 4th – 6th, Homeschool
Mostly used with 4th and 5th students.

Includes: PDF, 60 pages


This bundle contains a 39-slide PowerPoint and a packet of two practice assessments that focuses on drama elements and script comprehension. Dramas are unique in that they have their own terms and are written in a particular format. This is why students often benefit from instruction that focuses specifically on this literary genre. Students are provided with multiple opportunities for them to draw inferences and draw conclusion about the drama structure and elements. They also have the opportunity to read and provide evidence to support their understanding. These resources align with Common Core standards and TEKS. They are intended to prepare students for any dramas they might encounter in standardized tests.

This Elements of Drama PowerPoint begins by defining drama-specific terms. It then features three scripts, each with multiple choice comprehension questions. This file also contains a PowerPoint companion handout. You can choose from the Google Slides or printable companion handout. As you progress through the PowerPoint, students write/type on this handout and record their answers. If you would like to convert this PowerPoint to Google Slides you can do so with my permission.

These practice assessments can be used as a follow up activity for your students. They are available in a digital format (Google Slides), or as a printed format. Choose the format that is most convenient for your students.

It was an excellent way for my students take notes about drama before they dive into the reading of a play. My students found the notes easy to follow and understood. Great practice! This was done as a class.

This was a great way to introduce dramas, and the vocabulary associated. Then, we will read more plays, readers theatres, and so on. This resource contains useful information. It’s great!
