Drama-based Pedagogy promotes the relationship between drama and education, championing the versatility of drama-based teaching tools designed in conjunction with classroom curriculum. Written by highly experienced teachers who have collated their work over an extended period of time, this book bridges the gap between drama in education theories and actual classroom practice. With its extensive range of tried and tested strategies, plans and activities, Drama-based Pedagogy provides a uniquely accessible yet scholarly manual for those who work, think, train and learn in educational or artistic settings and contexts. It is the perfect companion to professional development and university courses, as well as for already established educators who wish to increase student discourse, reflection and understanding of virtually any subject matter in an authentic and communicative way.

In The Press
“DBP offers students of all abilities choices for self-expression. Instead of limiting communication to speaking and writing, DBP allows complex student thought, feelings, and ideas to be represented an infinite number of ways – physically, tactilely, aurally, and visually, to name just a few.” – Talleri A. McRae, Arts Access, Inclusion and Education Consultant“DBP is an engaging practice for anyone hoping to spark authentic dialogue with their learning communities. I have used these strategies to teach core content, engage youth in social issues, and create artistic projects.” – Nitra Gutiérrez, Creative Learning Instructional Coach, Austin Independent School District.
