Process Drama in One Fifth-Grade Social Studies Class
Rosler, Brenda
Social Studies, v99 n6 p265-272 Nov-Dec 2008
The purpose of this study was to describe a group of fifth grade students as they engaged in process drama during their social studies class. The author found that students who engaged in process drama learned to combine texts to understand and create new texts. As they became engaged in the material, students collaborated with each other and became leaders in class while honoring the cultures they studied in their social studies textbooks.
