This is an accessible, essential and highly practical guide for anyone who is interested in using drama as an educational tool to promote inclusion and to enhance practice with special needs settings, in particular. -- eye Story drama has an essential role in the education of students with disabilities. Jessica Perich Carleton extends its value by presenting techniques that are effective in a variety of settings. This insightful guide empowers teachers to implement story drama in their classrooms and to explore the transformative benefits of the art form. -- Vanessa Young, Executive Director of VSA New Jersey, The State Organization on Arts and Disability Perhaps one of the most important considerations in the special needs classroom is the student's ability to make connections between self, text and the curriculum. Drama, as a modality for learning, facilitates these connections in a deep and meaningful way to empower cognitive and social development. Story Drama in the Special Needs Classroom successfully provides teachers with specific tools and procedures for undertaking this most important educational activity. -- Dr. Lee R. Chasen, author of Social Skills, Emotional Growth and Drama Therapy I would recommend this book to all primary school teachers and feel that parents who run small groups or home educate could, under Carleton's gentle and lucid direction, also feel confident in running a story drama workshop. -- Asteens
