Teaching Drama Online / Remotely

A Growing List of FREE Tools & Resources for Distance Learning

As schools and theatre programs deal with closures due to COVID-19, we thought it would be useful to begin compiling a list of online resources to help keep your drama programs running. This list has been curated by the Beat by Beat Team. For even more distance learning content, check out Teaching Theatre Online, a 182-page eBook with step-by-step lesson plans for your virtual camps and classes.

    Does anyone know where I could find a blog or discussion for drama teachers online? I’d really enjoy a space to discuss some ideas for teaching drama, especially online now. These resources are great, I really appreciate them!

    This is a fantastic resource. Theatre Teacher Lesson Lending is also a great one – it’s a group on Facebook that’s definitely worth joining. Lots of colleagueship and generously shared ideas. Give it a look.
