Spotlight on Drama in the Classroom, K-6.
Washington Office of the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Olympia.
This booklet was developed from the premise that the activity of drama is central to a child's language experience. Its purpose is to help the classroom teacher initiate drama activities, understand the relationship of the activities to one another, use drama activities as an integral part of the classroom curriculum, and determine whether the drama program is accomplishing its intentions. The booklet begins with a foreword, notes for teachers and administrators, and an introduction. The first section, "Acting," contains an overview as well as the concepts, goals, and activities for the exploration of movement, speech, and improvisation. The second section, "Playmaking," contains an overview and concepts, goals, and activities for the exploration of plot, character, theme, and dialogue. The final section offers instructional guidelines and goals for the audience, another essential component of the art of drama. (TS)
