Drama Books for Teachers
These books are filled with ideas, exercises, techniques and material for speech, drama and communication teachers to use in their classes. All material has been tried and tested by experienced speech, drama and communicatons teachers on (dare we say it?) real young people!
Those powerful selections in which two actors must create a context, tell a story, convey tension and resolve it satisfactorily, all within the space of a few minutes. We have the just the right sort of material to make this happen.
Junior Play Books
Short plays. Varied age groups. Varied characters. Meaningful dialogue. All they need is your direction and imagination.
Plays and Play Scenes
Books of short plays: tried and tested. You can add characters, music, movement and dialogue as you wish. Some lovely concert items. Browse and buy.
Selections for BOYS
Boys, boys, boys. There just doesn’t seem to be much material for them out there. Well, these books will certainly help.
Solos, Duologues and Prose Compilations
Ideal for feiseanna/festivals, exams and concerts, the selections in these books have been specially chosen and adapted by experienced speech and drama teachers. These pieces are ideal for exams and feiseanna and, as with all our material, they have been tried and tested with young people.
There’s no shortage of material in these books for exams, class work, feiseanna/festivals and auditions.
Teachers' Handbooks (Helping Hands series)
HELPING HANDS: Teachers’ handbooks for the Primary School Oral English and Drama Curriculum written by Audrey Meredith, LGSM.
This set of six illustrated handbooks brings drama into the classroom using many of the exemplars contained in the primary curriculum. Each contains tried and tested exercises, tips, techniques, ideas, poems, stories, plays and projects, complete with cross-curricular themes.
Improvisation: lots of ideas and worked examples.
Mime: how to introduce it – do’s and don’t’s.
Poems: to read and recite – action poems – choral verse.
Stories: to read and to act out.
Plays: short plays to perform.
Concert Items: pageants – plays – compilations.
Movement: stage movement explained – dance drama.
Oral English: speech work, grammar.

Theory can be dull and hard to learn. These books, however, explain the theory of speech and drama in simple and effective terms. Especially designed for Irish Board students, these books also have a wider application for anyone interested in speech and drama.
