Narration Methods

Students can use several strategies to add narration to their dramas.  Narration is a technique whereby one or more performers speak directly to the audience to tell a story, give information or comment on the action of the scene or the motivations of characters.  Often times, how a story is told is more important that what is told.  We describe 12 relevant narrator styles for drama in this PDF document including Side Narrator, Chorus, or Puppet Master.  Select a technique most suitable to your story or your desired outcome.  Several lessons on this website have suggestions for explaining and modeling some of the techniques: search for Narrator under Concepts & Skills.
