Drama Through Storytelling

Overview

The theories of drama come alive with excerpts from two Canadian children’s plays, King Grumbleton and the Magic Pie and Chinook, and a story by a twelve year old boy, A Dog with a Thousand Fleas. These are used to suggest drama teaching methods which can be related to classroom work in other subjects. As well as an extensive children’s theatre bibliography, the book contains a 6 part "Drama Circle" which can be used to dial concept combinations in both drama and other classes.
