A great resource for the drama and generalist educators, filled with new ideas that are very user friendly I am grateful for all the lessons and activities that have ignited my students' growth in the dramatic arts throughout the year. Also kudos to the customer service for prompt response, and generous support.
I absolutely loved this site! I'm a TOC and took on this short term teaching contract since March, last minute. I could have taught music (of which I'm experienced) or drama but upon finding your website and all the amazing tools and guidance, I chose drama! I love what I've learned and what I am able to teach the kids! I mostly relied on the 9 week lesson plans but found all the downloads incredibly useful and fun! The site is easy to follow and the videos are great! My only request is to possibly offer either the site in French or perhaps simply have a few French plays as I work in a French school.
What a great resource for performing artist teachers! My students loved the games and skits found on Drama Notebook. All of my emails were promptly and politely returned. I would utilize this site again.
My third graders were begging to do a play in the script I purchased from the site. It was at the right reading level, entertaining, and had great directions. Even though we were unable to perform due to unrelated reasons, my students absolutely loved it. Practicing it engaged even my reluctant readers.
This site offered so many amazing resources for me to use in my youth theatre summer camp! I am so excited to use the things I got from DN!
I wanted to find something that my 1st/2nd graders could enjoy doing at the end of the year when all they can think about is summer break. The scripts for young readers is PERFECT! They are fun, short, and have 10 stories in one download! I am very appreciative of this resource and would recommend it!
Love Drama Notebook! I don't stay subscribed constantly but always come back as the content is awesome and really helpful for me as I plan local community drama classes for under 12 yrs.
I loved the variety and different levels of activities. They were short enough so that small groups of children were able to put on plays without a lot of help from me.
Such a great source for a variety of drama pieces! Perfect for the elementary, middle, and high school classrooms and any speech and drama club/team. Easy to search and find the perfect piece!
This is a fantastic resource. The only reason I did not renew is because I am changing jobs! The scenes, scripts, and lessons are incredibly helpful and made teaching a little bit easier.
It's very helpful for me to create my own drama lessons, especially for junior school students! They do love me more!
I signed up to look for a new play for my young students and was pleasantly surprised at the variety. And then I was thrilled to see all the different types of creative drama and improv books you offer! Thank you!
It was very easy to download and print the mysteries that I was looking for. It was helpful to have numbers for cast and for how long each play would be. That made it easy for lesson planning.
This is a great resource, and has been truly helpful when I've needed it. Thank you Drama Notebook!
I am a first year Drama teacher, and this website has been a life saver! Tons of great material!
Drama Notebook is a gem for any teacher that wants to get their students engaged and learning to collaborate, create, and reflect. This site has so many great lessons and scripts that are easy to use and won’t take reinventing the wheel to apply. I love the creators for making it accessible for all levels! Thank you Drama Notebook!
Drama Notebook is one of the easiest and BEST websites I have used as a theatre educator! I try other sites and I keep coming back. The customer service is fantastic and my students love the lessons and monologues I have used from Drama Notebook.
A fantastic resource. I plan to have my Year 2 students perform one of your plays . I will send through photos and acknowledge the brilliant authors. Thank you so much for making this website and the great resources for teachers!
This website had a fantastic range of plays to inspire our homeschool community. We didn't end up using one this time, but there is always next year.
My high school theater class enjoyed the scripts and scenes from drama notebook. I would absolutely recommend!
Drama Notebook provides a wealth of resources. I particularly appreciate all of the short scenes & skits. There is so much to explore!
Awesome source of materials and ideas. For the beginner (like me) or for a tenured teacher/director who just needs fresh ideas.
Drama Notebook has been great for getting professional, abridged versions of classic plays such as Shakespeare and old English morality plays. The website is easy to use and I would recommend it to any Drama or English teachers looking to put on a production in their school.
Fantastic site with helpful downloads that were both informative and easy on the eye. Have utilised so much in the short time that I have had the resources and the kids greatly enjoyed the scripts and tasks too!
Drama Notebook gave me more resources than I could ever imagine having at my fingertips. I have been teaching theatre for over 30 years, however this past year with Drama Notebook has made my job easier than ever. My students and I loved every drama game we played. There are so many resources that are cross curricular and I would recommend Drama Notebook to everyone!
This was an amazing resource. I started a first time Drama class in a local charter school and these resources allowed my students to explore theatre even even with the limited budget. As a behavior specialist who doubles as an elective teacher, this also allowed me enough resources to plan a quick lesson on the fly on even the busiest of days.
I Love Drama Notebook! It has been a lifesaver this year, even after 10 years teaching drama, I really needed some new ideas. Well organised and effective.
My students loved performing these short plays for a short drama unit in our reading class!
This website has helped me so much with my planning. The resources are amazing!
Brilliant - I really like that I was able to subscribe for a short time and download what I want then cancel. Wonderful variety of resources with a great variety of topics. Thank you.
Great resources - my school theatre group has enjoyed the scripts.
I couldn't be happier with all of the resources available on Drama Notebook. I'm so glad I found this website when I did.
A lovely site with great resources for all skill levels - students and teachers alike!
So happy that I found Drama Notebook! What an amazing resource!!
I joined to buy Perstephanie for a summer Greek Week camp (grades 4-6) but filled my cart with games and lessons I can use throughout the year (grades 7-12).
The site was easy to navigate as were the directions to meet copyright requirements. (Photos and email the playwrights, etc.)
Suggestion: It would be helpful to have the grade bands in BOLD in each description so we can locate them easier. Is it possible to add a filter for Elementary, Middle, and High School?
Also, can you bold the # of credits each item is?
Regardless, the process of downloading the materials was easy. The materials can easily be adapted to upper middle/lower high schools.
I will be back!
Hi there, thanks so much for your review and your feedback. While we don't have a filter option on the Drama Notebook website, you're welcome to reach out to email@example.com with specific script needs.
I can't praise Drama Notebook highly enough. I'll admit I was skeptical when I first heard about it, as a lot of drama curriculum I've seen in the past has been either common sense, too complicated, or boring. Hearing that it was a subscription model gave me even more pause. BUT after attending a free workshop out of pure curiosity, I was impressed with the creators' passion and skills so I gave it a try. I was wrong to ever doubt it! This site has been SUCH a wealth of information, from practical techniques to teaching/classroom management to super easy-to-use scripts and materials. It takes all the guess work out of it. So grateful for Drama Notebook!
Drama Notebook has excellent resources that are easy to access and implement. My students loved The True Story of Jack and the Beanstalk, and it was a great way to bring parents into the classroom to celebrate the students' hard work. You get a ton of resources for just one month of subscription, and since you can download the content, the resources will last a career.
This site is packed with great ideas and lessons, scripts, and monologues. A great resource for any theatre teacher.
This is a very professional and user-friendly site. Lots of clever and fun drama ideas!
As a public school administrator, I truly appreciate the excellent customer service!
Great resources to supplement classes and workshops! Saved me so much prep time. Thank you!
My students and I like the scripts, however, for the second time in a row, I have had to subscribe to get one script and then email to cancel a subscription I don't want. :s
Would love the option to pay for one rather than getting roped into something more.
Hi Rebecca, we don't have an option to purchase just one script, but we work hard to keep the site affordable for teachers. You can easily cancel your account online without contacting us. We will send you an email showing you how.
Absolutely LOVE THIS WEBSITE!!! It has given me incredible materials and the customer service is incredible!!
This was a nice site. There were a lot of things to look for and use. I just needed access to a play for a short period of time for my English class.
What an incredible site. I love teaching but one of my struggles is finding content and decent material. I am always hesitant when it comes to spending money because we all prefer the "free stuff" but I decided to take the plunge and start investing more in better material. Since doing so I am so much less stressed before a lesson and my classes seem to run a lot smoother, the kids really enjoy the material and I am a stronger and more confident teacher because of it. I remember coming home after my first "Drama Notebook infused lesson," specifically, 20 Practice Scenes for Pairs and Two Lines Game and saying to my husband, "Wow! I think that was my best class yet!" So thank you to all the amazing content creators, this material is amazing and worth every cent! Can't wait to teach my next class!
I love this site. I was teaching an elementary elective class and was able to find the perfect place and information for these young students. If I get the opportunity to teach again, I will definitely be using Drama Notebook. I can’t say enough good things about it.
I love Drama Notebook! It is a lifesaver for anyone teaching drama! I teach high school and every activity I have done from this site has been met with great success. Students keep asking to do more of the murder mysteries and games!
This site has been such an incredible resource for me as middle school and high school teacher.
I absolutely love this site. I was simply teaching an elective for fifth and sixth graders and the site enabled me to find resources that I couldn’t find elsewhere. The scripts were simple and easy for elementary age kids and there are definitely a variety of plays to choose from which makes it even more amazing I am super grateful for Drama Notebook and the people who created it.
This is a great site for drama teachers of all grades. I teach drama for the high school level and they usually hate most of the pieces I find on the internet but they really enjoyed the scripts and monologues I found here.
