Jumpstart! Drama: Games and Activities for Ages 5-11
by Teresa Cremin, Roger McDonald, Emma Goff and Louise Blakemore
Containing more than forty engaging, practical, easy-to-do and highly motivating drama activities this book will appeal to busy primary teachers who wish to enliven their practice and make more use of drama in line with the Framework for Literacy.
All the activities connect to well-known texts, which are popular in primary classrooms, and the conventions described can be used in a variety of subjects, suiting a wide range of learning techniques. The book is organised around four sections, which can be dipped into, each providing rich and accessible ideas to stimulate drama in the classroom, helping teachers to:
- use stories as a basis for drama work
- use poetry as a stimulus for drama
- teach non-fiction through the use of drama
- develop role play areas and the drama opportunities they provide.
Ideal for busy primary teachers who wish to encourage their pupils in drama, Jumpstart! Drama will help teachers to use literary and non fiction texts in a dramatic and motivating manner.
