Product description


`Inspiring Writing Through Drama is a rich, practical resource that guides teachers and children to write for real inside and outside the pretend experience. The units that the authors have provided demonstrate how writing informs drama thus marrying literacy and arts learning in meaningful - and yes, inspirational - contexts.' Larry Swartz, Professor of Education, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto, Canada `Patrice Baldwin and Rob John have a depth and breadth of drama experience to bring into play (in many senses of that word) for the pleasure and learning of children and adults. Writing is the focus here and the varieties of writing that are generated through a rich selection of sources and strategies makes this a really useful text. For new teachers, there are clear descriptions for effective teaching; for the seasoned teacher looking to generate a new excitement for learning, this text is a compendium of stimulating suggestions. It is the kind of book that teachers will want to have easily to hand-great bedside reading!' Juliana Saxton, Professor Emeritus, Department of Theatre, University of Victoria, Canada `This book is a manual for any teacher looking to make writing come alive through drama. It contains well-researched evidence of drama's efficacy to enhance the teaching of writing with purpose. Even better, it contains several wide-ranging unit and lesson plans to help even the most timid teacher take advantage of the power of drama in the classroom. It is sure to help many children experience both writing and drama in new ways!' Lauren Stripling, Producer, Story Pirates, USA
