Theater: Create a Script

Figurative language is the focus in the book Teach Us, Amelia Bedelia. After reading Peggy Parish's book, class members dramatize idioms from the text, using dramatic strategies such as characterization, exaggeration, and improvisation. They then write and act out their own idioms.

Your site is extremely easy to maneuver, and your search engine sorts beautifully--down to the grade level and super-specific subject matter. As a graduate student, studying for my teacher's license, I've found great, creative inspiration in the content links on your site. I count on your site more than any other I've found to date.
