The Drama Classroom: Action, Reflection, Transformation

Front Cover
Psychology Press, 2000 - 144 pages
"Clear advice is provided on what the key elements and principles are for effective drama practice. Informed by international developments in the teaching of drama, The Drama Classroom incorporates the pioneering work of two leading educators. Cecily O'Neill's emphasis on pre-text, or how educators need to weave challenging material into the introductory phases of drama activity is analysed. David Booth's approach to storydrama, and how such can be used as an effective learning medium across the curriculum is examined. The text blends good theory and practice (praxis) and demonstrates how educators can become effective reflective practitioners in drama education. Pitched for all levels, primary, secondary and tertiary, The Drama Classroom is a necessary and relevant resource for those committed to the power of drama in education."--BOOK JACKET.
