A Drama Guide for Idaho Schools, Grades K-12.
Idaho State Dept. of Education, Boise. Div. of Instructional Improvement.
This elementary and secondary drama guide contains activities to help teachers make drama more creative and more imaginative and rich for students so that they will have a rich appreciation of and taste for the theatre when they grow up. The many and varied activities described are first categorized into three main areas: awareness, interaction, and expression. Within these categories the activities are arranged by three educational levels -- elementary, junior high, and high school. Students use parts of the body such as hands, feet, and eyes to show that the body talks without the use of words; present an abstract idea through pantomime; reproduce the sounds of animals; act out well known folk tales; and create characters based on observations through each of the senses. The addendum, which comprises about half of the publication, contains detailed information on the technical aspects of theatre including a discussion of production, stage equipment, scenery, and a guide for costuming. The guide concludes with a bibliography of teacher resource books, anthologies, and scripted material. (Author/RM)
