Using Creative Drama in the Writing Process.
Annarella, Lorie A.
Creative drama can be used productively in the classroom by allowing students to dream and to put these ideas down on paper. Guided imagery is a way of accomplishing this. Guided imagery is when the creative drama teacher guides students on a journey through the imagination. It can be used as a prereading and prewriting exercise. Listening and speaking skills can also be developed with the use of guided imagery. Use of the guided imagery procedure involves breathing exercises, description of the journey or imaginary object, and discussion of the experience afterward. Visualizing and imaging are used almost simultaneously as the use of guided imagery is implemented in the teaching of writing. (Contains 10 references.) (EF)
