Simon and the Woo: Theatre Can Develop Energy in the Classroom.
Annarella, Lorie A.
Introducing children to theater and play production in the classroom setting can give a richness and energy to the quality of teaching. Play production can also be beneficial as a curriculum tool. When students participate in a project in an experiential way, learning is taking place. "Simon and the Woo" is an original play for children that can be easily performed by students. The play has seven characters, and the setting is an old hollow tree where one of the characters, Oliver Owl, lives. Oliver Owl is the narrator, and the play unfolds as one of the stories Oliver tells. The time of the play is just before Christmas, and "Santa" is one of the other characters. Children watching a play become engaged as an audience, and having them participate in the development of a play can teach them to appreciate the value of the art form. Students will best learn this through the organization of their teacher/director. (NKA)
