I'm just getting started, where do I begin?
On our Getting Started page, you'll find a guide of sample lessons to assist you. After you sign up you'll gain access to our seven introductory lessons, suitable for all grades to learn foundational drama skills.
What are the introductory lessons?
We created the introductory lessons to jump-start any teacher or group unfamiliar with using drama in the classroom. Using these lessons, you can implement and experiment with the creative process and the basic skills of drama, while stimulating learning and integrating drama with other subjects. Afterwards, you can move on to our full grade-specific curriculum with objectives aligned to the United States National Standards. We've planned the academic year for your with the lessons and corresponding assessments in sequence.
How do I find what I need?
The OneStopDRAMAShop site is designed around our search function. Choose the type of material (activities, stories, lessons, and more) and any additional criteria (such as grade level, concepts & skills, and room arrangement) to find downloads tailored to your needs.
How do I access the drama curriculum materials?
As a subscriber, please select the PDF as shown below. The add to cart option, when available, is for purchasing individual materials without a subscription. It also appears when purchasing materials in addition to the monthly allowed downloads.
What if I want to provide training to my group / organization all at once?
No problem! Either contact us to set up a group account, or engage the services of Karen Erickson to provide custom training or workshops for your staff.
How does drama enhance the regular classroom experience?
Integrating drama into your class can improve students' academic performance, comprehension, attendance, self-esteem, and improve engagement. Learn more about the benefits of drama integration here.

As a Standard Member, you can download 4 lessons (articles, stories, lessons) each month. If you upgrade to a Premium membership, your monthly limit is increased to 12 downloads. Both levels have the same selection of standards-based drama resources. For more membership options, visit our membership page.
How long will I have access to my downloaded curriculum?

Can I preview the available curriculum documents?
We offer a 30-day risk-free trial period where you can sign up and download 4 documents to use. We believe you will find the material invaluable for working on students' drama skills and general knowledge, and will continue with your membership.
Why should I sign up if I already own Karen Erickson's books?
You already have some of the best material available for integrating drama into your curriculum - congratulations! On OneStopDRAMAShop, you will find new activities and stories previously unpublished and available exclusively to subscribers. Mining her decades of drama archives, Karen is sharing many tried-and-true activities and stories for the first time. These gems are useful for both those already using her curriculum and those new to her integration methods.
