Beyond the Bard: Fifty Plays for Use in the English Classroom by Joshua Rutsky

Gives teachers background, timeline and teaching ideas for using more and different drama in language arts classrooms or similar educational settings.

This book is a great resource reviewing fifty plays, indexing them by themes and period, and offering ideas for incorporating them into the curriculum. As interest in “active learning” and alternate ways of reaching curricular goals grows, this book offers drama as an active learning experience that is still based in traditional works.

For language arts teachers at the middle school through secondary levels.
