Fostering Communication Skills in Young Learners through Creative Dramatics.
Rubin, Janet
Creative dramatics can be used to teach young children a variety of communication skills. Noisy stories help children to learn and make sounds and later can be used for dramatization purposes. Narrative pantomimes can teach children word order, sensory awareness, and nonverbal communication. Phrases, pictures, and props help stimulate imagination, empathic response, and involvement. Open-ended stories provide students with an opportunity to create their own stories, orally or in writing. Story dramatization, the center of creative dramatics, sharpens listening skills, increases attention span, improves sequential understanding, and allows practice in recall and organization. (JL)
