Why Interactive strategies?

From assessment, observation, and teacher/administrator feedback, we know that interactive drama strategies make a substantial impact in early-learners’ content recall. By engaging students’ bodies, voices, and emotions, interactive drama strategies support student engagement, comprehension, and retention.

Interactive strategies are often student-centered, rather than teacher-directed. They are especially well-suited for special needs and ELL students because they offer diverse entry points.These strategies can be applied sparingly or comprehensively based on your comfort level. While this online resource discusses interactive strategies exclusively in the context of literacy lessons, these tools are equally effective in every subject.
