PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This teaching script was developed using the work of Lenore Blank from the Kennedy Center and her book "A Dramatic Approach to Reading Comprehension."

It is an arts-integrated lesson using drama to delve into a work of literature, "Zebra" by Chaim Potok. It requires the students to infer.

This script includes a warm up, thought provoking questions of four main characters, and a closing activity. The premise is a talk show called "Dog Eared with Wagatha Christie." The talk show host loves books and dogs, and so do the students!

When I do this students are seated in a square for the talk show portion. Each group is assigned a character. For each question you allow a couple of students to answer, though pretending you are talking to the same person.

I have listed free a brief PowerPoint presentation which has the link to the YouTube video.

This script was developed for myself, and, though I believe it is complete enough for someone else to follow, I am pricing it accordingly.

This is a cute idea. I have a free flip chart that goes with this story on Prometheanplanet.com that you may be interested in. I think you can import flipcharts into smartboard and powerpoint presentations. I put this item on my wishlist.
