Our integrated Arts Education Unit involves your students in an exciting hands on experience. As they learn the history and elements of a musical, they will through drama, writing and designing venture into the making of a musical. Students learn about the history of a musical, the elements in a musical and names of the most well known musicals to date. Students listen to a musical selection and analyze it. Students act in role as artistic designers and design a drama mask. Students view a musical on video and write a movie review. This Music lesson provides a teacher and student section with a variety of reading passages, activities, word search, exam and answer key to create a well-rounded lesson plan.
