Have You ROARED Today? A Creative Drama Handbook.
Valeri, Michele; Meade, George
This handbook presents a number of creative drama activities that may be used by teachers to motivate and enhance student development. Included are activities for sensory awareness; spatial awareness and body movement; verbalization; pantomime, rhythm, music and poetry; storybuilding and dramatization; and characterization and improvisation. Each activity contains information on usual grade level applications, particular skills focused upon, materials that may be required, whether the activity should be considered a "warm-up,""general," or "follow-up" exercise, and suggested side coaching (teacher's encouragements or explanations to the students). Appendices provide a cross referencing of activities according to their appropriateness for particular academic needs, behavioral needs, and student level. A sample lesson plan and a bibliography are included. (Author/EB)
