Tableau is the theatrical technique in which actors freeze in poses that create a picture of one significant moment in a play.
Classroom use of Tableau and Human Slide Shows--a sequence of Tableaux--as drama learning strategies can produce active, engaging, meaningful learning experiences.
To really get the most out of Tableau work that enhances the reading of a story, novel, play, or text book, student actors have to do deep reading, thinking, and rehearsing. This book explains how.
This 57-page 8.5" x 11" paperback book is designed to allow teachers to hold it in their hands as they provide step-by-step instructions to students. The full color assessment criteria charts within the book (also available as posters--See below) can be projected onto a screen with a document camera.
