From the Publisher
"Tauber and Mester discuss different teaching strategies for those in elementary through university levels. They focus on the idea that there is an acting- teaching parallel that can improve effectiveness and consider what can be learned from the world of acting. Specifically, they describe animation in voice and body, classroom space utilization, humor, role-playing, props, and suspense and surprise, while detailing stage and film examples of these techniques and classroom correlations. Other chapters address educational foundations, the importance of teacher enthusiasm, and classroom management. Acting exercises are provided in one chapter. This edition contains new chapters on instructional technology and classroom entrances and exits. All chapters have been revised to include recent research and descriptions of the experiences of K-12 teachers."
