about this item

Why teach drama? How can a newcomer teach drama successfully? How do we recognise quality in drama?

Starting Drama Teaching is a comprehensive guide to the teaching of drama in schools. Exploring the aims and purposes of drama, it provides an insight into the theoretical perspectives that underpin practice alongside activities, example lesson plans and approaches to planning. Written in an accessible style, the book addresses such practical issues as setting up role play, how to inject depth into group drama, working with text, teaching playwriting, as well as common problems that arise in the drama classroom and how to avoid them.

This fourth edition has been updated to reflect the latest educational thinking and developments in policy and includes:

  • A new chapter on researching drama
  • An extra section on digital technology and drama
  • Guidance on different approaches to drama
  • Advice on how teachers can achieve and recognise quality work in drama
  • A discussion of drama concepts including applied theatre, ensemble and rehearsal approaches

Acting on the growing interest in drama both as a separate subject and as a teaching methodology, this book is full of sensible, practical advice for teachers using drama at all levels and in all kinds of different school contexts. Written by an internationally recognised leading name in drama education, this book is valuable reading for trainee teachers who are new to drama and teachers who wish to update and broaden their range.
