This revised and expanded edition of a popular classic resource for teachers explores constructive ways to use drama and story to engage students in learning through all areas of the curriculum - language arts, social studies, and the arts in education. Part memoir and part guide, this extraordinary book offers a compelling chronicle of the developments in drama education over the remarkable 40-year teaching career of David Booth, a leading authority in drama and children's literature. "Story Drama" offers teachers strategies and techniques for moving students inside the stories they read or experience together, and helps them build a storying community. Organized around proven ways to use all types of stories, each chapter features effective frameworks and workshop lessons that can be easily implemented in any classroom. In this comprehensive approach to using story and drama with children of all ages, teachers will find: the theoretical background they need to create a powerful story community through drama; practical examples of interactive and cooperative role playing with students; resources for exploring personal response through all the arts; strategies for helping students develop skills as story tellers, story builders and story makers; and innovative ways to incorporate a variety of drama processes - improvising, role playing, mime, storytelling, enacting, playmaking, reading aloud, writing in role, and performing. This engaging book shows teachers how they can connect story and drama as they help students build their own imaginary worlds, drawn from their own real-life attitudes and understandings. This highly readable book shows new and experienced teachers alike how to use the power of drama and story to create vibrant, learning opportunities for all students.
