About the Book:

If someone gave you a book of names and their ancient meaning, would you be curious to look up your own name and find its significance?

Namely ME is the first in a series of thought-provoking monologue books for middle and high school students, based on the ancient or traditional meaning of a character's name. The monologues are funny, poignant glimpses into a teen's life that use a creative new format to teach the skills of drama. Use them as individual classroom pieces, a unit of study or to create a performance in which every child has a chance to shine.

Namely ME has an easy-to-read chapter filled with exciting ideas to help teachers. Teaching such skills as memorization, getting into character and taking a moment, Namely ME gives teachers a wide range of inventive monologues to use in the classroom. Take your students into a deeper study of naming traditions throughout the ages and across cultures. The possibilities of creating an exhilarating final production from the monologues are also explained clearly in this bonus chapter.
