Fall 2019 - Introduction to Theater - Learning Resources

Theater Students, Lisa Bernd, and Heather Caprette

Welcome to our Fall 2019 – Introduction to Theater – Learning Resources book. The purpose of this book is to provide open educational resources for those who study Theater. It’s being authored by many helpful Cleveland State University Theater students, as well as Lisa Bernd, PhD, and Heather Caprette, MFA. In the spirit of open, it’s our desire that any alterations of the assignments be shared openly with others, at no charge, but realize we can’t control for this and there’s not always an easy way for someone to share publicly. Many authors of OER generate resources to freely help students and teachers because they realize the challenges students are facing with affording an education and educational materials. We realize this challenge and it’s our desire that these resources be provided for free.

In the sections of Chapter 1, we’ve included interactive learning content to test your knowledge over Theater history and production, with many knowledge checks over Theatrical Worlds, Edited by Charles Mitchell, as well as Playhouse Square theaters and productions, and other theater content. This content can be used by Theater students anywhere in the world, but will be helpful to those reading Theatrical Worlds.

We are using H5p.org interactive content tools at https://h5p.org/content-types-and-applications, installed within Pressbooks hosted on our library systems, to create content for the Interactive Learning Content chapters.

Pressbooks is a free open source download from Github (See: https://github.com/pressbooks/pressbooks). This version allows install of plug-ins such as h5p. Anyone can register for an account on Pressbooks.com for free, if they would like Pressbooks to host their book.
