With so much emphasis nowadays on GPA and class ranking, students have virtually no time for creativity. Drama books not only teach students about the fundamentals of acting, they also help develop speaking and communication skills. Most of all, drama books help students tap into their creative side, which is often unused in high school, where there is so much emphasis on technology and fact-based curriculum.

Drama books foster creative thinking and general creativity in students. Students who use both sides of their brain are likely to perform better overall in school. Many times, the students who ranked in the upper levels of their class participated in some sort of creative activity, such as drama. Students who may be introverted may find an outlet by reading drama books, since they will learn how to express their emotions. What may start out as a role in a play can lead to confidence that carries over into everyday situations.

Drama Books Put The "Act" In "Activity"

Drama books can inject fun and energy into any curriculum. Think of how much more exciting a history class would be, if each session began with a reenactment of a speech or an improvised skit related to subject matter in the current lesson. Drama books will provide you with activities to put these ideas into action.

Drama books can round out any course of study. Just a few minutes each day reading about being creative and improvising has the power to make a student's mind ready for any mental challenge. Sometimes out of the box thinking not only gives students a break from pressure and monotony, it expands their minds and allows them to think on new levels so they are better prepared to handle the variety of situations life throws in their paths.
