Dramatic Learning provides a wide range of opportunities to help students improve reading fluency and internalize core concepts, using their creativity and imagination as doorways to understanding.
1. Select your play by grade level, subject, or title in The Play’s the Thing. Any of these links will take you to a sortable page that features all three pieces of information at a glance. Pick your play and get ready to explore!

Additionally, the spotlight features links to curriculum correlations, lesson plans, mini-inquiry projects, an assessment rubric, play starters, ideas on how to put on a play, and links to play posters and programs.
