Description

Discovering Drama: Theory and Practice for the Primary School

Written for Primary school teachers, undergraduate and postgraduate students of Education and Drama, this is a comprehensive theoretical and practical book which situates the teaching of drama in the context of the Irish Education system. It provides descriptions of a range of process dramas, which were facilitated and developed in primary schools throughout Ireland. Each drama is followed by an analysis of the theoretical and practical principles which underpin it, thereby seeking to empower the teacher with the knowledge and skills needed to implement further drama programmes. The emphasis of the book is on a particular approach to the teaching of drama known as process drama, which is the basis of the revised primary curriculum in Ireland.
