“ Exley, Beryl E. (2006) Transmediation in the Middle Years: Integrating picture books & process drama activities to enhance students' engagement with multimodal text.” Link to full text. Abstract: This paper considers the efficacy of integrating picture books resources & process drama activities to enhance middle years students’ engagement with multimodal text. While picture books & role play have not traditionally been seen as sophisticated resources & strategies for young adolescents, this paper suggests that they have much utility for engaging middle years students as code breakers, text participants, text users & text analysts (Luke & Freebody, 2000) of written, visual, oral & gestural texts. This paper involves readers in exploring the sophistication of picture book resources for young adolescents & working through a range of process drama activities. The workshop activities are based on the John Marsden & Shaun Tan (2003) allegory of colonisation, ‘The Rabbits’. Specifically, ‘attribute lists’, ‘sculptures’, ‘transformations’, ‘freeze frames’ & ‘conscious alley’ activities will be introduced & analysed in terms of the literacy practice demands they make of middle years students.

A nice selection of games, but the really cool aspect of this site is how it organizes them. You can select games based on their focus: character, concentration, energy, getting to know you, group cohesion, improvisation, listening, plot, trust, and voice & dialogue.
