Summary

The eight articles in this booklet suggest activities designed to help students see drama as an active, engaging pursuit. The first article uses excerpts from Harold Pinter's "The Caretaker" to illustrate how improvisation can be used to help students discover meaning in a play. The second and third articles provide suggestions for lessons based on "Romeo and Juliet" and on "King Lear." The fourth article offers suggestions on producing and directing a full-scale school production of a major work such as a three-act play, an operetta, or a musical play. The fifth article provides creative teaching strategies for the study of drama texts and includes ideas for pairs, small groups, large groups, and readers' theatre activities. The sixth article offers a strategy for using various modes of improvisation to help students understand the theme of "Everyman," and the seventh article presents 12 exercises that are valuable in helping students develop an appreciation of drama or other literature. The final article discusses readers' theatre as a method of teaching literature. (FL)
