Drama for the Disadvantaged: Boston-Northampton Language Arts Program ESEA, 1965.
Archer, Kay Morgan
This report describes a Title I summer program which sought to develop a success-oriented self-concept in disadvantaged students with academic deficiencies. Drama was used to encourage freedom of expression, sensitivity, and creativity. The bulk of the report is a weekly outline of the program; the students were taught such acting techniques as pantomine and the use of speech to create illusion. The classes also wrote and presented five radio plays with commercials, which are included in the report. (NH)
