Comedy Theatre for Upper Primary Teacher Resource Book

Author: Elizabeth Klein, Publisher: Phoenix

Elizabeth Klein has nearly thirty years of teaching experience and has written ten plays for Upper Primary students based on children's enjoyment of humour.

This book provides students with a collection of quirky, nonsensical plays which they can read and perform in the classroom. Even the most reluctant child can blossom in confidence through drama.

Each play is accompanied by questions for classroom discussion, worksheets and curriculum links for teachers.

From libidinous references to belches and farts, to wicked names that conjure up ridiculous characters and situations, children love surprise and shock. What’s more, they like to express humour in their own flamboyant exuberance. These plays have been created to motivate and encourage students in creativity and reading skills.
