" Part food for thought, part instruction manual, part stories and scripts to explore, and part encouragement to recharge, this practical book offers a comprehensive approach to using role play and discussion to build meaningful language experiences. It explores issues around storytelling, silent speech, writing, and imagination and shows teachers how to be effective observers and support the deeper meaning that comes from working inside and outside the text. This authoritative resource is full of simple strategies and texts that have been chosen for their ability to engage students, get them out of their chairs, and let them learn actively and socially. The strategies begin with simple games, and evolve into more complex learning opportunities. The model texts give teachers a great place to start, and anecdotes from real classrooms put them into context. These classroom glimpses illustrate the real power that students can bring to their learning as they share within groups and find ways to involve their audience."--Publisher.

The second in a series, Into the Story 2 presents a well-argued approach to the value of story drama structures, including ten examples of the structures themselves. Each one based on a different picture book, the structures are clearly outlined with detailed lesson plans--complete with a rationale for story choice, key understandings and questions, extension activities, and other resources and materials needed for each drama. The collection includes Margaret Wild's Woolvs in the Sitee, Irene Watts' The Fish Princess, and Maribeth Boelts' Those Shoes. Each structure has been piloted and tested for five years with both students and teachers from across the globe. Providing a strong pedagogical foundation, Into the Story 2 will become an invaluable resource for generalist teachers, drama educators, pre-service teachers, and facilitators of applied drama, alike.
