Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2009 in the subject Education - Reading Instruction, , course: Research Methods , language: English, abstract: The aim of this study was to discover what happens to students' reading comprehension skills in high school when they use creative drama rather than traditional methods. The researcher combined creative drama with reading through different activities. The students who were assessed were Turkish mother-tongue speakers. Two classes from the same year received instruction in the differing methods over a three week period. Data were collected and the pre to post changes were compared using a two tailed independent sample t-test. The researcher's hypothesis was null and this hypothesis was rejected. The results of the study suggested that there was a significant difference between teaching readings through drama over traditional methods.
