Synopsis

Here, the authors provide dramatic strategies accompanied by age-appropriate stories and poems from around the world that address such issues as sharing, caring, cooperation, consequences, and bullying in order to create a positive classroom environment. The students' enactments take them to different lands around the globe, back into time, and into their very own neighborhoods. The varied theatrical forms included in this book_pantomime plays, shadow theater, living newspaper, story theater, museum theater, and creative tableaus_span the full spectrum of current drama used in the classroom. To help students create their own variations of the stories with their own dialogue, the authors provide easy-to-follow structures. The framework of Warm-up Development, and Wrap-up, allows teachers and students to discover challenging inquiry and writing techniques and participate in mind-opening discussion and enrichments that can be applied across the curriculum. All activities were designed to promote a deeper sense of trust, mutual respect, and pride in working together. This book will be a most welcome addition to a teachers' 'must have' list of practical books for the classroom.
