Reflection: Standards Alignment Cut! Theme in Drama Workstations - Section 2: Formatives for the Unit


I have to say this was not my best teaching because I was constantly searching for materials for my students to read in this genre. I spent a lot of time and money trying to make this a good learning experience for my kids, and I still feel defeated. I'm hoping there are more materials provided for us since this standard is so big for us. We have two plays in our anthology and they're hardly quality literature for my kiddos. I was creative and resourceful this year, but I need more for my kids next year. I'm sure many of you feel the same way.
