Story Dramas for Grades 4-6: A New Literature Experience for Children

Front Cover
Good Year Books, 1998 - Education - 128 pages
Here's an innovative approach for exploring children's literature -- poetry, fiction, fantasy, historical fiction, and nonfiction! In a story drama, students become the characters in the stories and poems they hear and read. Literature and content area texts spring to life as students participate in dramatizing it. An exciting feature of this book is the addition of web site addresses so that students can explore topics in more depth and go on virtual field trips.
