Objective: students identify how drama is used in careers.

What a wonderful lesson for career day or as you near the end of the school year. Students reflect on all of the skills and tools they have learned in drama and imagine how they might be used in a future career of their choice (part of the third grade objectives). In simple imitative activities or culminating in a group pantomime, this lesson is perfect for having students reflect on their yearlong drama work and connect it to their future life dreams. This lesson is part of our recommended sequence in the Third Grade Curriculum.

Third Grade Drama Journal: Using Drama in Careers

To maximize student achievement, download this drama journal for students to use as reflection or formative assessment. For each lesson in the curriculum, we have created a corresponding journal page for your students. A drama journal allows participants to reflect on their learning and artistic growth (metacognition). It also allows you, the teacher, to see how students are using the drama vocabulary, thinking about big ideas, and perceiving their own strengths and weaknesses. If you use the journal for assessment and would like more assessment tools, visit our Third Grade Curriculum
