Shoes on the Highway by Maureen Brady Johnson
Book DescriptionHow did that shoe end up on side of a highway? What does that graffiti mean, and who put it there? The answers to these simple questions, stimulated by a photograph, can make your classroom buzz with ideas, enabling students to spend time on the craft of writing instead of waiting for inspiration to strike. Award-winning playwright and theatre educator Maureen Brady Johnson offers a jumpstart to teachers who want to take a first step toward teaching playwriting - or any form of creative writing - by offering audio and visual cues that stimulate creativity. These photographs, songs, lyrics, sounds, and overheard conversations help writers see the extraordinary in the ordinary and take risks in their writing as they compose short plays. Go ahead, try something new. Watch your students cultivate storylines, create conflicts, and develop characters; see them invested in and engaged by the entire process from their first draft to a final, polished play. And marvel as they strengthen their writing skills in ways that more traditional writing assignments can't. Read "Shoes on the Highway" and witness the power of playwriting at work in your classroom.
