Book Title: The Drama Teacher's Survival Guide #2: Activities, exercises, and techniques for the theatre classroom
Publisher: Meriwether Pub
Author: Margaret F. Johnson
Ms. Johnson's followup to her wildly popular Drama Teacher's Survival Guide
focuses on teaching drama in the classroom. She breaks the book down into units that can either stand alone or be used together. These highly informative units include: The First Week, Technical Theater, Choral Reading, Mime, Stage Fighting, Solo and Duo Acting Activities, Working with Monologues, and Students Writing Their Own Show. Each chapter contains in-depth descriptions of activities to further the students' understanding of the subjects, illustrated examples of scenes and products created by real students, detailed explanations of theatre techniques, and timelines for how long the unit should take.
This book is an incredible resource both to new drama teachers searching for inspiration and experienced drama teachers looking to spice up their lesson plans, and reproducible forms, tests, and handouts add even more value to this survival kit. As with the original book, it will banish your stress and guarantee your success!
