C.R.O.W. adding drama to a language arts class

Students lack motivation to write. One strategy that can be incorporated to motivate students to write is to use Drama strategies. Drama strategies infused into the English classroom foster enthusiasm for the written word. The researchers in a combination special and regular education class of twenty students tested the infusion of a drama strategy over a three-week period. A pre and post survey about their attitudes about writing was administered. The post survey showed an improvement in their motivation to write. If incorporated, the use of drama strategies in the classroom has the potential to improve motivation to write on a grand scale.
