Publisher: Meriwether Pub
Author: Rebecca Young
There's so much more to drama class than just teaching students how to act! Working on individual and group projects devoted to drama components helps students learn everything that the world of drama encompasses. From costumes, scenery, and props to memorization, character development, and creative writing, there is a vast array of skills to develop and explore. This book is a great resource for any drama teacher who wants to provide alternative ways to develop unique drama-related skills. Sixteen different projects each contains an objective, an overview, a project timeline, idea variations, tips and tricks, fun facts, and more. Most projects can be modified to be an individual or a group project and can take from one to five class periods, depending on how much time you want to devote to a particular topic or component. A couple chapters even include fun worksheets for the students to complete on their own or in a group.
