Vent in the classroom

By Beth Bentrup

The teacher must take liberties in adapting scripts to particular needs. Skits may be developed from unlimited resources. Children's stories and fairy tales have traditionally been used but current events can be subjects which are quite effective. Incidences that occur in the classroom may be developed into excellent programs. Material should fit the child's attention span and humor can be included when appropriate. The most successful scripts involve the children in active participation. Although teacher-made scripts are valuable, the children will learn just as much from self-written material. A combination of both methods has proven the most advantageous.
