Story drama is a process in which literature is used as a springboard for participants to go beyond the text and explore characters and dramatic action. Perfect for working with young children, this gentle artform is introduced by Joshua Rashon Streeter of James Madison University. Great for any teacher who wants to start working with young children- or who would like to create a drama outreach with their students.
