Literacy Through Drama

Literacy Through Drama

This two day residency uses theatre exercises to promote excitement about reading and improve literacy skills. Theatre strategies can increase comprehension, enjoyment, and confidence in emerging readers. After participants are introduced to the elements of story like plot, setting, and characters, they will engage dramatically with the story by becoming the characters and reenacting scenes. Through these experiences, students gain a better understanding of the story and create a personal connection to it. The story book utilized will be chosen according to the grade level.
