Item description

 This FREE  lesson focuses on actress and singer the Tony award-winning Ali Stoker. If you don’t know Ali, she is the first wheelchair user to win a Tony award. The student researches questions about her life, the journey to Broadway and various accolades she’s received while practicing growth mindset.


Need something for a substitute? All is needed is the internet.


Many teachers combine these biographies with other  actors such as  Lin Manuel Miranda.  More biographies will be available soon!


If your students need to do a research project, the Places Please lessons are good ones to introduce the unit. Perhaps more students would pursue a career in the theater arts if we show them what is possible for them?

In addition, these bios. are a great springboard for discussion concerning goals, tenacity, determination and professionalism.


This product includes:

  • Letter to teacher explaining the lesson
  • Student note sheet
  • Teacher’s key

There is more to theater than just improvisation, plays and games. I teach theater with a twist. This is an example of what I mean.
