About the Author:

Catherine A. Franklin is an assistant professor in the School of Education at The City College of the City University of New York. She teaches social studies education to both undergraduates and graduates. She began her career by teaching in schools around the world (e.g., Colombia, Japan). In New York City, she was a middle school classroom teacher for over ten years. Along with teaching social studies, literature, and writing to eighth-grade students, she worked as a cooperating teacher for student teachers who were placed in her classroom. She earned her EdD at Teachers College, Columbia University in the Curriculum and Teaching Department and her MA in international education from Lesley University. She consults on social studies education and curriculum design.

Review:

"Armed with a belief in the power of the imagination and the human drive for inquiry, Franklin transforms American civics from a stale and static subject into a compelling, student-driven civic discourse. This book is a mix of constructivist philosophy, dramatic technique, and letting the world into the classroom." (Sam Brian, Eighth-Grade Humanities Teacher 2008-04-25)

"The author’s approach to curriculum drama supports students gaining a true understanding of the subject matter rather than a limited understanding that may or may not lead to good test scores. Students are encouraged to think and work together to solve problems. These are the skills they will need for a brighter future." (Gayla LeMay, Social Studies Teacher 2008-04-25)

"Rooted in a deep understanding of development and the complexities of curriculum planning, Franklin′s book presents with clarity and detail a dynamic view of classroom life that supports students′ imagination and creativity, the importance of questioning and critical thinking, and the responsibilities and participation of citizens in a democratic society." (Harriet K. Cuffaro, Professor Emerita 2008-04-28)

"Offers educators a powerful method for making learning essential to students’ experience. Once they enter a curriculum drama, students become actors in a dynamic world that engages them intellectually, emotionally, and intuitively. They must sharpen their thinking, communicate effectively, and write and speak persuasively to be part of the action. Franklin is an imaginative and thoughtful guide taking teachers and students into the fertile territory of history brought to life." (Judith Ghinger, Early College Liaison 2008-05-28)

“Curriculum drama engages students by activating their imagination on a variety of topics. Through inquiry-based learning, students actively participate as researchers and actors while the teacher serves as the facilitator." (Burnedette Drysdale, Principal 2008-06-05)

"Curriculum drama positions students to take up important civic concepts on their own terms through authentic, participatory activities. Catherine Franklin offers a step-by-step process for engaging adolescents in drama." (Christopher Worthman, Associate Professor 2008-06-17)

"Using vivid examples from her own teaching, Franklin details the thinking behind the multiple decisions a constructivist teacher has to make prior to, during, and after teaching to maximize the potential of curriculum drama." (Karen Zumwalt, Edward Evenden Professor of Education 2008-07-07)
