This easy-to-use and comprehensive teacher-resource book by Alice Savage makes it easy to do drama activities and lessons in the classroom. Plays and drama are a powerful tool for teaching speaking and communication skills. This book has everything you need to integrate theater into language learning, including warm-ups, pronunciation activities, improv games, roleplays, reader’s theater, and even full play productions. Plus 10 original scripts so you can put the activities into action immediately!
Conveniently organized into two parts, Part 1 includes pragmatics mini-lessons, community builders, drama games, and pronunciation activities. The book also has also lesson plans for producing a play (either fully-staged or as Reader’s Theater). There are also guidelines and activities for writing plays and suggestions for integrating academic content. Finally, rubrics and evaluation schemes assist in giving notes and feedback, or assessing performance.
Part 2 includes 10 original monologues and scripts of varying lengths that can be photocopied and used in the classroom. Specifically designed to feature everyday language and high frequency social interactions, these scenes and sketches follow engaging plot arcs in which characters face obstacles and strive to achieve objectives.
With a foreword by Ken Wilson, this book is a must-have for anyone interested in drama activities and lesson plans. Help students become more confident and fluent speakers with The Drama Book.
