Reviews - What do customers think about Introduction to Theatre Arts: A 36-Week Action Handbook?

It was just OKAY  Sep 14, 2007
I found the layout to be a bit confusing. The information contained was just OKAY...a bit elementary.
 
Student Handbook only...  Jun 8, 2007
If you are a teacher thinking about buying this book, beware! Unless you are buying each student in your class their own handbook, this book is not necessary. The Teacher's edition has the entire student handbook already included. I purchased this book and it was entirely unnecessary since I had purchased the Teachers edition thinking I needed both for my class. It has helpful activities, but nothing entirely spectacular, and nothing I couldn't have found on the internet for free.
 
Not extremely user-friendly at first...  Aug 9, 2006
As a new teacher, I hope this book will provide the help I've been seeking. But I'm finding it confusingly arranged and excessively chatty. The first section discusses point systems, substitute plans and other minutiae in great detail, while the actual syllabus finally appears unheralded on page 106. Nothing is referenced by page numbers, so I'm constantly flipping back and forth, looking for the material the author references. Maybe I'll get used to it as the year goes on. But at this point it's pretty maddening.
 
Great for beginning teachers  Jul 13, 2006
There are few text books on the market for theatre arts, especailly at the middle-school level. This is a great book for the beginning teacher and/or the middle-school teacher of theatre. It provides an acceptable educational structure while still acknowleging the creative side of the subject.
 
Theatre Arts Guide for Middle School Teachers  Aug 6, 2005
This is by far the most outstanding teaching guide I've found yet. The lesson plans are well organized which allows me more time for hands-on teaching. The guide includes great work sheets and lots of creative ideas. Everything from scene work and characterization to theatre history is covered in a sequential order. I've found this a great teaching tool.
