Creative Dramatics Handbook. Revised Edition.
Ehrlich, Harriet W., Ed.
The primary aim of the creative dramatics program detailed in this handbook is to give teachers a new teaching tool. Participants in the 45 staff development workshops during eight years have been classroom teachers, reading teachers, teachers from Head Start, teachers of special education and mathematics, resource teachers, librarians, and paraprofessionals. Sections outlined in the handbook focus on the philosophy and objectives of the program; basic definitions, suggestions, and general rules for improvisation in the program; program sequence and techniques for covering sense memory, feeling, hearing, seeing, tasting, smelling, multisensory exercises, emotions, characterization, dialogue, and story dramatization; simple and advanced activities; the subject areas of the language arts, mathematics, social studies, and Afro-American history; creative dramatics and the exceptional child; community and recreation/creative dramatics classes; and music and games. A bibliography is included. (JM)
