Every drama teacher eventually creates his/her own list of emotions because working with emotions is central to the acting process. On Drama Notebook, the list is prepared for you and the emotions are set up on the page so that it’s easy to print them out, cut them apart and put them into a hat. There are 45 distinct emotions on the list and the lesson includes five different ways to use them PLUS a very detailed drama activity that encourages students to use emotions authentically.
Example of a drama activity using emotions:
Divide the class into groups of three or four. Each player chooses an emotion from the hat. Students must perform a skit using all three emotions. Coach them through the process of developing characters, deciding on a situation, and telling a short story with a beginning, middle and end.
