Reinvite Drama Into Classrooms - New Ways With an Old Form

What's Inside

Classroom-based drama activities such as mime, choral response, tableaux, Readers Theatre, and story reenactments help students to think critically about a text in order to understand characters' motivation and viewpoints, which promotes a deeper understanding of story narratives. See how dramatic play looks in real classrooms, and learn how it contributes to children's literacy development.
