Making Meaningful Theater in the Empty Space
Shosh, Joseph M.; Wescoe, Jennifer A.
English Journal, v96 n5 p42-47 May 2007
As teacher-facilitators, Joseph M. Shosh and Jennifer A. Wescoe emphasize the educational value of theater. To promote student leadership of a production, students audition for roles on and off stage and contribute to the technical aspects of the production through "crew days," from which they build community and develop a sense of respect for the complexity of production. Additionally, Shoch and Wescoe implement writing activities to help students understand and develop their characters. (Contains a list of resources and 1 note.)
