Project Eco-Drama--A Model.
Kleinau, Marion; And Others
Focusing primarily on the education of high school students, the project described in this paper combines traditional ecology studies with studies in communication and the verbal arts in order to build an awareness of community problems and provide a means by which students can transmit their learning to the community. The first section of the paper discusses methods and forms for integrating classes in ecology with those in basic communications, debate, oral interpretation and readers theatre, literature, or mass communication. The second section gives specific exercises for group interaction that include interpersonal approaches, games, role playing, audience debate techniques, and other exercises that may lead into the creation of scripts. The section also provides suggestions for devising similar exercises. The third section discusses the creation of scripts for readers theatre and contains some sample scripts that have evolved from the project. (FL)
