This is a fantastic padagogy. I like it much. Usually when teachers teach science or history with only lecture, it causes students loose interest. However, when students play roles in the class, they enjoy learning. This is really a student centered class. I appreciate teaching through drama.

This is a lesson that the students will definitely remember because of the movement involved! Great lesson!

What a great way to make Science and Social Studies learning more active and thoughtful! I'll definitely be asking myself, "How can my students put themselves into this learning?" as I plan my lessons for the coming year. Thanks so much.
