This Book Is Not about Drama: It's about New Ways to Inspire Students
Barrs, Myra; Barton, Bob; Booth, David
Stenhouse Publishers
"This Book Is Not About Drama" explores issues around storytelling, silent speech, writing and imagination and shows teachers how to use role play and discussion to build language experiences that are meaningful for learners. This authoritative resource is full of simple strategies that begin with the simple and evolve in to more complex opportunities, including creating rituals, exploring the storyteller's voice, demonstrating read-aloud, celebrating role-playing, and more. Classroom glimpses illustrate the power that students can bring to their learning as they share within groups and find ways to involve their audience.
