Bring in the Arts: Lessons in Dramatics, Art, and Story Writing for Elementary and Middle School Classrooms.
Walker, Pam Prince
This book describes a course in drama, art, and story writing for children in grades four through eight. Twenty lesson plans guide students from creating scenes in drama to writing and illustrating their own stories. The plans include simple and practical improvisations for the classroom, as well as suggestions for plays and exhibits of the children's art work. Improvisation is the core method of the proposed activities. Lessons are grouped in three categories: (1) dramatics, in lesson plans one to seven; (2) art, in lessons eight to fourteen; and (3) story writing, in lessons fifteen to twenty. Contains a list of sources for plays and references. (FB)
