Editorial Reviews

Midwest Book Review
Drama is not just play acting, it includes creative activities, conceptual learning, and whole body involvement. Drama helps all children gain confidence and a better sense of self. Adult and child alike are involved in both teaching and learning through the process of intuitive discovery. The activities included in Drama In The Classroom can be used as an adjunct or even an integral part of a regular curriculum. Parents at home, working and playing with their children, or adults seeking more creativity in their lives, will also enjoy and benefit from the exercises. Through dramatic activities, young people can find their true and unique selves; appreciate the talents and needs of others; feel the satisfaction of working successfully with a group; develop skills which will be useful for other endeavors; help add meaning to factual material; and provide a safe working atmosphere that is as free as possible from anxiety and competition. Drama In The Classroom features 76 original lessons including a variety of activities for grades K-8; a question and answer section; specific goals, readiness activities, step-by-step procedures, and evaluations for each lesson. Drama In The Classroom is as appropriate and effective for home schooling collaborations as it is for public school classes.
