More than a hundred of you emailed me with your reactions to that disturbing letter from a teacher who was only allowed to teach reading and math. (No literature, science, health, arts, etc.)
A common theme in your letters is that your principals were reluctant to let you do a play with your class.
But many of you have been very successful in teaching your administration the advantages of doing musical plays.
WHAT'S YOUR SECRET?
What have you done to convince your principal that plays are an excellent use of class time?
We'd like to put together a page on our website with suggestions for this. Your comments will help thousands of teachers!
