Discovering Language through Drama
Subjects: Drama, English Language Arts, Social Emotional Learning
Specifically for ELL and Strategic English classrooms, this residency develops communication and comprehension skills through drama activities and techniques. Students will harness their storytelling abilities to present both scripted and spontaneous speeches, listen and respond to each other’s work, and build confidence in their ability to communicate effectively through spoken English. Activities are based on specific skills measured by the English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC) as well as California Common Core standards for English Language Arts.
