Every time a teacher has a new drama course they often need new ideas. How about doing something different while still applying basic drama principles?
The booklets include detailed step-by-step instructions, illustrations and material lists to follow to construct a marionette and the costumes in a classroom setting. The process is broken down into "Lessons" that guide the students in what should be completed each class.
The teacher and student booklets are equipped with ideas for all areas of the process, including script writing, marionette construction, costumes, backdrop painting, staging and evaluation.
