English in Three Acts.
Via, Richard A.
Using drama to teach English--especially as a second language--allows students to use natural, conversational English in a meaningful context; it requires students to participate in new cultural roles and to behave in a culturally acceptable way; and it provides a purposeful, highly motivating classroom activity for intermediate and advanced students of English. This book outlines and discusses the drama approach to teaching English, including activities involving preparation (talking exercises, improvisation, role playing, and scene study), play selection, acting techniques, and play production. Additional information is given concerning royalty payments, one-act plays, three-act plays or long plays, and collections of one-act plays available in paperback. Seven short plays for the classroom, a glossary, and a bibliography are included. (JM)
