179 games and improvs for learning language arts

By Tom Ready


Cover of
Author Tom Ready, a recipient of a national Christa McAuliffe Fellowship for drama and literacy in education, shows that improv games are a fun way to develop language arts knowledge as well as theatrical skills.  For students of all ages, the 179 games in this book blur the lines between performance and language practice, teaching punctuation, grammar, and parts of speech as well as theatrical skills.  And what’s a game without competition?  Understanding that students engage more with competition, each game includes a scoring suggestion, as well as providing the setup and process.  All the games are identified as either easy, moderate, or difficult, and a matrix in the appendix indicates the appropriate grade levels (K-3, 4-6, 7-8, 9-12) for each game, along with a few words on the objective of each game for easy scanning.  Categories include:  Phonics, Vocabulary, Parts of Speech, Punctuation, Sentences, Reading Comprehension, Storytelling, Writing, Acting, and more.
