A Framework for Speech and Drama: An Introduction to Speech and Drama from Kindergarten to Lower Secondary.
Tasmanian Education Dept., Hobart (Australia).
This series of five booklets is intended to assist principals and teachers in Tasmania in planning a broad-based continuous program of speech and drama throughout primary and lower secondary classes. The material contained within the booklets has been arranged and presented to emphasize the basic concepts and skills which are inherent in a speech and drama program and which strongly support the development of both a language and an expressive arts program. Throughout the booklets the importance of the individuality of children and the building of relationships between people are major concerns together with the development of ideas, attitudes, and values which influence the quality and competency of communication skills. The five booklets are titled as follows: (1) An Introduction and Overview; (2) Expressive Movement; (3) Talking and Listening, Storybuilding and Telling; (4) Sound, Words, and Poetry; and (5) Drama. Each booklet gives examples of starting points and developments which have been carried out successfully in classroom situations. Each booklet also discusses aspects of planning and organization, and contains a list of suggested resources. (SR)
