Plays as Teaching Tools in the Elementary School.
Bordan, Sylvia Diane
Shared creative involvement in playwriting is the focus of this book which presents seven sample plays and suggests techniques for motivating and guiding children in classroom playwriting. Included are (1) a discussion of the general benefits derived by all kinds of students from participation in playwriting, plus specific guidelines for developing original plays; (2) models of two original social studies plays and general teaching methods for average, superior, and slow classes; (3) details of procedures involved in the creation of three original plays with retarded readers, emphasizing the play as a dramatic device, as a vocabulary builder, and as motivation in developing a reading program; and (4) a discussion of methods utilized in the creation of two original plays with superior classes, using choral speaking for motivating self-expression and an historical theme for motivating further reading in history and classical literature.
