Enhancing Reading Comprehension through Creative Dramatics.
Dwyer, Evelyn M.
Creative dramatics (the spontaneous expression of feelings and ideas in an imaginative manner) brightens the reading program and provides teachers and students with both enjoyable and academically profitable experiences. Any reading teacher can comfortably integrate creative dramatics into the basal reading program. Activities such as creating spontaneous dialogue, pantomime, and developing puppet shows get students physically and joyfully involved as they extend what they read. Creative dramatics nurtures creative approaches to problem solving in teachers and students. Suggestions for creative drama and pantomime in the classroom setting are provided. (Fifteen references are attached.) (RS)
