Reviews for How to Write a Play

Booklist Reviews 2012 December #1
With the continuing rise of texting and social media, learning the art of writing has never been as important to today's youth. The titles in the Language Arts Explorer Junior series break down the steps involved in writing various texts into manageable tasks and emphasize each through related activities, which can also be printed from the publisher's website and distributed for educational use. Using the fable of The Tortoise and the Hare as a backdrop, How to Write a Play asks students to consider characters, dialogue, scenes, and other dramatic fundamentals. Accompanied by colorful graphics and photos of writers in action, these books offer models throughout and conclude with a checklist summary, a glossary, and a list of related books and websites.
