Give Them Roots … And Wings! is a practical manual for teachers trained in drama or just starting out. As the title describes, roots are a sense of where we come from and wings set us free. This book contains classroom-proven material from skilled drama teachers, aimed at the child's creative, social and intellectual growth. The lesson plans, adaptable to your individual classroom needs from primary through upper grades, cover five areas from beginning movement to advanced story-making. The activity/exercise sections include descriptions of motivation and method plus expected behavior. Subjects include: Creative Drama, Drama in Content Areas, Creative Movement—Pantomime, Senses and Feelings, Characterization, Dialogue—Vocalization and Dramatic Form. Revised and expanded from foreword through appendix, this edition adds a section of drama in curricular areas. Related articles by drama leaders nationwide give valuable perspective. A special chapter is devoted to evaluation. Contributors to the information in this book include: Ann M. Shaw, Dorothy Schwartz, Nellie McCaslin, Aurand Harris, Johnny Saldaña, John Sharpham, Pamela Rich, Dorothy Aldrich, Judith Kase-Polisini and Lin Wright.
