Teaching Content Outrageously
Pogrow, Stanley
Kappa Delta Pi Record, v47 n1 p18-23 Fall 2010
This article first explores the theoretical bases for why dramatic forms of instruction stimulate student learning and recall. Next, the article considers a practice that systematically applies drama, fun, and fantasy to embed selected content objectives into students' memory. This practical tool, which facilitates instructional reform in the current era of standards-based curriculum and high-stakes assessment, is designed to be effective with even the most resistant learners in grades 4-12. The author calls it "Outrageous Content Instruction."
