Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungFocusing on the transformative power of the creative arts process, Christopher Worthman offers readers a new way of thinking about literacy development and, specifically, the teaching of writing. In this groundbreaking ethnography, he describes and analyzes the writing development of a group of teenagers involved in a unique community-based teen theater project. Rich with theoretical and practical insights, "Just Playing the Part": -- Explores the critical relationship of language and writing to movement, voice development, and dramatic interaction.-- Demonstrates how literacy use in a multimedia creative arts program influences the teenage participants' understanding of themselves and others.-- Offers a successful program for all students, especially "at-risk" teens, based on the power of the creative arts to stimulate academic and personal development.-- Contributes new research on out-of-school literacies.-- Includes a script developed by the group and detailed descriptions of improvisational activities that can be adapted for use by other classes or ensembles.
