A tableau is a wonderful way to incorporate play and critical thinking into your classroom. The frozen, silent picture your students create with their bodies can be used to see how well students understand the main elements of a story, focus on a summary, or just a way to check how well students understand a text.
A tableau can be used with any story and can be done in a variety of ways. Try it out and see what drama pedagogy does for your classroom.
