This revised and updated edition of Teaching Classroom Drama and Theatre will be an essential text for anyone teaching drama in the modern classroom. It presents a model teachers can use to draw together different methodologies of drama and theatre studies, exemplified by a series of contemporary, exciting practical units. By re-appraising the different traditions and approaches to drama teaching in schools, it offers innovative, contemporary projects and lessons suitable for a wide range of teachers and learners.

Divided into eight units with each one offering photocopiable resources and exploring a different theme, this book has been updated to reflect current trends in drama teaching and important themes in contemporary society such as:

  • Myths and urban folklore
  • Moral decisions
  • Asylum seekers
  • The transition from primary to secondary school
  • Conflict resolution and propaganda
  • Protest and resistance
  • Medieval plays
  • Transportation
  • Crime and punishment.

Each unit provides ideas and lesson plans which can be used as they are or adapted to suit your own particular needs.

This book will be an invaluable resource for anyone who teaches – or is learning to teach - drama in secondary schools as well as those who work with young people in other drama settings.
