Children and Dramatics.
Crosscup, Richard
This book embodies the concept that the dynamic interplay of experiences and activities remains part of the child's functioning throughout life and that it is the role of adults to establish, where they can, the forms of activity in which children will engage. The chapters describe various contents for such activities and discuss how adults can guide activities in such ways that meanings can unfold for the child and become the child's meanings. Topics of the chapters include: activity and meaning; the why of dramatics; make-believe; dramatic fun and games; pantomime; improvisation; communication and values; shadows andpictures; dance and music; original plays; creative approaches to standard plays; casting as a democratic process; expanded communication in movement and speech; scenery and lighting; properties, costumes, and make-up; the adult leader's role; children and audience; and image and reality.
