Product Description
The Drama Game File 2nd Edition Companion Notebook
The Printable Pages From the CD-ROM
Curriculum Program for Arts and Literacy, PreK-12
Item# 7705

Designed as a companion to the 2nd edition CD-ROM, this durable and portable coil-bound book contains the 250 printable pages from the CD-ROM (which contains more than twice as much additional material.) All pages are printed, page-numbered, and organized in 10 sections with plastic poly tabs. No computer is needed to gain instant access to the 101 lesson plans, visual aids, glossary, 92 sample classes, and cross-indexing by drama skills, theatre arts categories, school subjects, multiple intelligences, and all grade levels.

This book saves the time and money of printing from the CD-ROM. The practical design includes a CD-sleeve to keep the disc and book safely together for storage or travel, a rear pocket for supplements and teacher notes, and a durable and flexible plastic cover and back to protect the book's contents. The smooth coil-binding protects pages from loss and easily flips around for holding or photo copying.

Bonus material not found on the CD-ROM includes a full-color visual tour of the curriculum with teaching ideas, Quick-start setup guide for the CD-ROM, teaching tips for each section, and summary lists of all available choices in the six sets of Character Cards.
