What’s New in Literacy Teaching?

Reinvite Drama Into Classrooms: New Ways
With an Old Form

Nancy Roser, Miriam Martinez, & Holly Carrell Moore


Classroom-based drama activities such as mime, choral response, tableaux, Readers Theatre, and story reenactments help students to think critically about a text in order to understand characters’ motivation and viewpoints, which promotes a deeper understanding of story narratives. See how dramatic play looks in real classrooms, and learn how it contributes to children’s literacy development.
