Overview

Here is a collection of well-organized, practical ideas to guide the teacher through a drama course with primary children from grades K through 6. The exercises show how to develop control, the basic movements, relaxation, warm ups, drama through mental pictures, accessible props, sound effects, music and performance. As well, the activities contain many step-by-step examples of how to "talk the children through" creative dance and drama experiences using the teacher's best asset, the voice. Allison Lee's years of experience both as a teacher and as a student of drama have resulted in a book which will provide inspiration, as well as great practical help, for teachers eager to introduce creative dance and drama into the classroom for the first time, or augment an existing program. An audiotape recording of music and sounds for exercises in this book is also available.
