The Character Interviews Drama Strategy
In both the university courses I am currently teaching, our focus is Character Interviews. My colleague and co-author Lenore Blank Kelner developed this fabulous integration of drama and reading comprehension. I want to get some more video of the drama strategy in action in classrooms, but I finally merged some videos I shot years ago into the iMovie above. Lenore explicitly details her process in our book A Dramatic Approach to Reading Comprehension . If you want to see the strategy in action with older students, here’s another video: Character Interviews in Action with High School Students.
