Welcome to the Drama "Workshop" resource forum at Rotation.org. These resources are for those who like to teach with drama in Sunday School. In the Workshop Rotation Model, we designate a classroom to be the "Drama Workshop," outfit it with all sorts of drama supplies, and staff it with a teacher who likes to teach with drama, then rotate a different grade group into it each week. That way, drama techniques get used on a regular basis and the teacher gets better at delivering/adjusting their lesson to each group. Teachers who like to teach with drama in their traditionally organized Sunday School are welcome to glean from these resources.
For drama ideas and lessons for specific Bible stories, look up your story in the Lesson Forum. For a wide variety of exemplary drama-infused Bible story lesson plans, take a look at what our Writing Team has come up with.
"Drama" here at Rotation.org describes a host of dramatic techniques, including skits, re-enactments, "News Broadcasts," creating fun special effects, and using creative photo and video techniques like "flat lay," blacklight, shadow theater, and photo tableaux. Some dramatic techniques can include singing and sound effects, and we've also developed a number of "scriptless" or "less script" approaches! Also related are Puppets, re-enacting with the LEGOs, and using "Storytables."
