Do not stop or pass GO~ directly to Folger's Shakespeare Library! Sign up for the Educator's online newsletter and order Shakespeare Set Free, use the activities for any type of text. My students do well when I give them the language in small snippets and have them walk around and state the line to other students then exchange lines and repeat (sort of a musical chairs type game) Once they are familiar with 5 or 6 lines...we read the script or text.
I have used the Set Free techniques with Canterbury Tales, The Crucible, Sonnets, and grammar instructions, definitions ect.... Using now with children's books as a pre-writing technique. The Giving Tree, Nothing happens on 90th Street and The Secret World of GrownUps work great in a 9th grade ELA classroom
Hi Melissa! Great question. Unfortunately, things like this - when posted on the wall - tend to get buried / lost. For that reason do consider re-posting the question up above us in the discussion forum as a crowdsource question. That way you have a dedicated URL and I can share your ? on a Crowdsource Tuesday!
Hi Kim - yes this group is not as jumping' as the other ones but do consider copying and pasting your question up above into the discussion forum (As a CS question). I don't know that people know about this group so much but if we we can broadcast your question it might bring some more drama folks into the fold. Stuff on the wall gets lost over time but CS questions have URLs (hence they can be shared with a wider audience).
Thanks, Fred. Looks interesting for my la students. My drama kids would smell a rat ("this isn't language arts class, Mrs. W")!
Hi Kim, I'm happy to see some activity, too. I work as a consultant with middle and high school students in Santa Cruz County, and have several video and digital media related projects underway. The most exciting is a collaboration with Make Magazine and the Maker Faire around writing that comes out of do-it-yourself type project work. There's a handout from a workshop we did here:

Just happened on this group, which doesn't look like it's too active but I'll take a shot. I'm a middle school language arts and drama teacher(elective, not production)--anybody else out there? I'd love to talk drama issues...have a million of them. Big one for me is the struggle to find middle school appropriate material (high interest, easy reading level). Suggestions?
