This mini-melodramatic masterpiece is sure to spark a love of all classics for your child. Many classic novels and plays are difficult to read in class or watch on stage, and attempting to teach these to children can be even more challenging. But, as the author states in the book, “there is no better way to learn than to have fun!” Kids who have read or performed these plays continue to come back for more!
Do you want to incorporate a little drama into your homeschool or homeschool co-op? This fun little series is designed to "do" plays. Easy to read and to understand, the series targets schools and afterschools but would be very adaptable for homeschools and co-ops. The actual presentations of each play or book are short; usually 10 15 minutes. They are written in three different versions, each for an increasing group size (6-9; 9-12; and 12-17+). The text is colloquial, in general, but incorporates actual quotations from the play or book. These are highlighted and the "actors" are encouraged to speak those lines precisely but to use their own wording otherwise if desired. After all, "all the world's a stage." 80 pgs, pb. ~ Janice
