    I teach special eduation and I use drama to teach social skills or to solve playground problems. My aide, the social worker and I will roll play something that we have observed happening in our room and we will demonstrate what we saw or heard happen (we also pick 2 kids to help in each roll play) and then once again with a solution. We then talk the situation over with the class. The kids just love it and it does help them to learn to read body language etc. Learning disabled children often do not just automatically learn these skills like other children do and anything that can be done in the classroom to help them is a plus.
