Creative Dramatics as an Effective Teaching Strategy.
Jackson, Chiriga L.
This project focused on the use of creative dramatics as a teaching tool in core academic subject classrooms. Research has shown that student-centered instructional activities, such as the use of creative dramatics, allow students to construct knowledge and make meaningful the new concepts being learned. This case study describes the classroom experiences of a sixth-grade math and remedial reading teacher and a sixth-grade language arts and social studies teacher who use creative dramatics as a teaching tool. As a result of using creative dramatics in teaching subjects such as language arts and social studies, both teachers have witnessed gains in the cognitive and social development of their students.
