Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a Language Arts teacher who was asked to start a Theater Arts' program at my middle school this year. I have ordered a number of books with theater arts games to warm-up a class. We call it circle time--the students gather in the center of the room in one big circle. The students love it, and the games are purposeful.

However, the books I already had described the games in long, densely written paragraphs that were hard to decipher and then explain to the class on the fly.

Each exercise in this book gives the specific purpose, objective, and focus questions to discuss with the group, which is important. However, the real beauty of this book is the easy-to-read format that allows me to flip through and QUICKLY decide which game to select for the day. Then, I can easily paraphrase each step of the game to class, again on the fly.

Therefore, no long, dense instructional paragraphs to decipher. I found the other books time consuming and frustrating.

I just love the easy preparation and presentation I can effectively accomplish in a matter of minutes that the bulleted format of this book allows.

Highly recommend for the busy teacher looking for time-saving techniques.

A unique approach to drama games, this book is a boon to theatre teachers! Creating a useful theatre curriculum can sometimes be a daunting task because sometimes a school district's guidelines are general. Justine Jones and Mary Ann Kelley present a whole book of improv games which can be used as the backbone of a course curriculum. What a great idea to "teach theatre skills through improvisation."

This book is a two-in-one deal because the games can simply be played as drama games, or they can be incorporated into a lesson plan to teach specific acting skills.

I appreciated the detailed, informative introduction to the book, "About the Book," and it is important that it be read before jumping into the games.

The drama games, many of which I've never experienced, are divided into 30 units with fascinating titles. Included in the book are two sections which include advice for doing a unit on storytelling, radio drama, and puppetry.

Each game includes: directions, sample ideas, focus questions, and a helpful hint. Also, on the side of each game page is a list which includes: demo time, players prep time, performance time, level of skill, group size, equipment, reason for playing the game, and the skill which is emphasized.

I highly recommend this book. It could be a priceless addition to a theatre teacher's library, but probably won't spend much time on the shelf.

Great book to use as a resource to design a camp, performing arts exploratory, etc. It helps to buy the companion book,"Improv Ideas" or you do not know some of the references it makes or if you just do not want to be responsible for brainstorming ideas yourself.
