Summer 2017

DN Summer Site Updates

Summer 2017 we will be updating every single lesson on Drama Notebook, proofing them and adding hotlinks to other relevant material…

We are going to make things even easier for you to find on Drama Notebook by adding links to relevant material into nearly every title on Drama Notebook. This will save you valuable time when planning your lessons! This project will likely take about six weeks! If you need something specific, that you cannot find on the site, please contact Janea. (janea at drama notebook dot com) She has hundreds of unfinished lessons and can usually find supporting materials for those in need!
