For years, Ann Burke and Julie O'Sullivan have taught second language classes. They have found that the use of drama allows students to experiment unselfconsciously with language and vocabulary, pronunciation, intonation, and voice in ways they have not experienced before - especially not in a language classroom. Ann and Julie also know how difficult it is to find materials to suit what they teach. So they wrote the book on it - a book that gives teachers, no matter what their background, all the tools they need to incorporate drama into their language classes.
Here you will find clear instructions on how to: conduct a drama class use acting and role-play exercises select appropriate scripts for language learners guide students to write their own scripts dramatize scripts step by step for performance. Watch your students increase their confidence, motivation, fluency, and understanding of social conventions when communicating in a second language. Involve them fully with something that's both fruitful and fun. Get them involved in drama.
