In this ARTSEDGE lesson, students study the art of the Japanese Noh theater and act out a Noh play. In learning about the history, theatrical elements, music and dance, and costuming, they are also comparing and contrasting these to the other theater elements they have studied involving Greek, Elizabethan and Modern Theater. Students are assigned or allowed to choose essay questions that they need to research and answer. They prepare a handout for the class on the topic, and present their findings topic to the class.
