Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-Tired teachers who practice what McCullough preaches, "Anyone Can Produce Plays with Kids," should be pleased with this offering. These skits tackle apostrophe usage, homonyms and homophones, the metric system, fractions, flight of birds, magnets, energy, time zones, governments of the world, Seneca Falls 1848, and recycling-all in tidy 10-minute skits. Each one is complete with concept identification, activities, discussion questions, and production notes. In the foreword, the author suggests expanding the skits to fit one's classroom space or curriculum needs and states, "once you've got the hang of it, have students write their own plays-." This is one of the best suggestions offered. Self-produced skits that sound like kids talking are far more successful with the intended audience than those written by adults mimicking them. Expecting "anyone" to handle teaching science, math, language, and social science with theater arts with equal success is a tall order, but panicked substitutes with no lesson plans or a rainy-day recess to cover might try a skit to focus a class or start a conversation. Most teachers will be able to get "the hang of it" without all of McCullough's epistles.-Jody McCoy, The Bush School, Seattle, WA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
