A Cross-Curricular use of Drama in the Primary Classroom
Step By Step is a practical guide to bringing the new Irish Educational Drama Curriculum to life in your classroom. Step by Step is published by the National Association for Youth Drama (NAYD)*, the development organisation for youth theatre/drama in Ireland. The book is written by Joanna Parkes and Sarah Fitzgibbon, two of Ireland’s most experienced drama practitioners.
It contains a collection of their most popular and successful educational drama schemes, which have been tested and delivered in over 21 primary schools from inner city Dublin to rural Donegal. As a result, these schemes have been enjoyed and appreciated by 70 teachers and over 2,000 pupils. The approach is cross-curricular and the book is designed in an easy to use handbook format with schemes clearly divided according to age group.
