Picture this: Drama and Poetry for Play

  • Joanne Kilgour Dowdy


The purpose of this workshop is to give students an interactive experience with drama in the classroom. They read, perform and dramatize the themes in selected poems to enhance the kinesthetic approach to learning. Based on the belief that human beings are all players who “act out” and that such a means of communication is natural and important to our successful functioning, the poetry performance workshop also encourages teachers to bring their own experiences to the classroom and develop ways to connect with their students through enacting stories.
