Theatre for Youth Third Space is a practical, yet philosophically grounded, handbook for the practice of theatre and performance with children and youth in community and educational settings. Positing an ethical framework for working with youth (particularly youth in marginalized communities), and detailing pedagogical approaches and techniques, facilitation and devising strategies, methods of encouraging deliberative dialogue and building community relationships, Woodson explores positive youth-development theory and details multiple project models based on youth-development practices.
Guiding readers step-by-step through project planning, creating safe environments, and assessment and evaluation protocols, Theatre for Youth Third Space will be an invaluable resource for college-level arts and education students and youth leaders working in a range of settings and situations.
