Have to Build Theater Program...HELP! :)

Hello all! So, I am hoping there are some middle school theater/drama teachers that can lend me a helping hand. I will be teaching a period of drama next year along with my 4 math classes ( I know, sounds weird but it's actually weirder that I teach Math!). Now even though my BA is in theater, I graduated 15 years ago and I just don't know where to begin with these kids. There will be 6, 7 and 8th grade students in the room and only one class a day so there isn't a beginning or advanced class. Also, my kids are mostly ELL. My state has standards, thankfully, but I just don't know where to begin.

If I start with theater history, I think they will fall asleep. Where do all of you start? What units do you plan? I know that I want to teach them about the history of theater, important terms, acting, directing, script writing, critiquing.. but in what order etc. I will really appreciate any help that you can offer.

Hello,

How are you? My name is Mr. Taylor I am the Drama Club Educational Director at M.L.K. Career Campus. I have bee involed with Theater since i was three years old. It is a wonderful subject to teach. The most important area to start with is the History of theater and work you way into the other areas.
Have Fun!

FYI: a friend of mine (who is a director in his spare time) has a daughter with a double major: Theater and Math I am an x-theater major teaching first grade this year (Kinder for the past 6) Hang in there. I taught HS drama as a production coach and stage manager volunteer when my kids were that age. LOVE IT!!
