PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

If you are teaching a creative writing class or are working with students on effective storytelling, this 21 page tutorial contains over 60 drama games designed to help students become better storytellers.

The games range from warm-ups to activities that can result in creating pieces to perform.

Sample Storytelling Game:

True Stories

This is a directing game. In small groups, players take turns telling true stories about something that happened to them. You can provide a springboard such as: the time you were most scared; a time when you were really proud of yourself; the best day of your life; etc. Other group members listen intently and vote on the most interesting story. The storyteller then chooses other group members to act out his story. (He may or may not play a character.) The actors improvise the story and the director/storyteller gives the cast notes before acting it out again. The goal is to make the story as true to life as possible.

*If you are teaching drama this year, you may want to consider visiting the Drama Notebook website. It's packed with drama lesson plans, activities, scripts and more. Members pay less than $1 per lesson. (Membership is $9.95 a month--cancel anytime. Monthly members can download ten items every month.)
