The Things You Can Read welcomes you and thanks you for your readership. We, here at The Things You Can Read, ask your help, if you visit our site regularly, please follow us either via email or Google Friend Connect.  Launched on June 7, 2012, our site has already attracted a great deal of attention.  One of the goals of the site is to feature reviews of Children's Picture Books, Young Adult novels and Adult Literary Fiction/Nonfiction.  A second goal for the blog is to be a resource for teachers of English and writing--with examples of student created writing, writing tips, resource links, and the opportunity to pick the brain of a seasoned English teacher.  To spice things up...every now and then, we'll also include random quotes and thoughts on education and life in general, but our ultimate goal is to reach out into the blogosphere and be a "Book Whisperer" and "Writing Whisperer" to children and adults of all ages.   Thank you for your readership.  Here is to a lifetime filled with reading and writing.

Making Drama Come Alive!

Each year at this time it is with great excitement and anticipation that I close our study of Drama by attending a LIVE performance.  Each year the play changes but the awe that a LIVE performance brings to my students is always the same. Combining the study of drama in our textbook with the "authentic theater experience" is priceless. We are lucky to have a local theater in our area, Swift Creek Mill Theatre, and they do a fabulous job of offering school performances of various productions.  This year their production of The Little Lion works not only for the DRAMA unit but also with our BIG PBL Unit. Again, attending a live theatre performance makes the words on the page come alive, and with all that hard work of learning all  those drama terms...Whooh... what a great reward!  

How do you make Teaching Drama come alive?
