The Brain Research Behind Reader’s Theater

Mack’s interview for the International Society for Technology in Education is currently featured on the Literacy Special Interest blog. The interview covers using drama in the classroom, creative ways to share it (such as podcasting), and the brain research behind the “repetitive reading” that makes read aloud plays so valuable in developing reading fluency. Mack was selected for the interview based on his work both as a practicing classroom teacher and the author of dozens of plays for Scholastic classroom magazines.  To hear the interview click here, or visit the the Literacy Special Interest blog, which provides a wide variety of useful resources on using drama in the classroom. The interview with Mack is Episode #4, The Drama of Literacy Learning.
