Developing Thinking and Language Skills Through Drama Activities
Teaching should be exciting and creative but an overcrowded curriculum can make this hard for teachers to achieve. Help is at hand with these literacy and numeracy lesson plans that also cover language development, thinking skills, and drama.
Thinking it Through allows teachers to customize lesson plans to meet their own needs using the book's downloadable resources as well as assess pupils language abilty with handy photocopiable assessment worksheets. The book will help each child reach their full potential regardless of ability using ideas for differentiation and extension and structure lessons according to national curriculum objectives.
