This classic edition of Mike Fleming's The Art of Drama Teaching provides a multitude of practical ideas for teachers of drama and for those who are interested in using drama to teach other subjects. It takes the form of detailed discussion of twenty-five drama techniques including but not limited to:
beginnings and endings
monologue and narration
off-stage action and reported action
Each technique, topic or convention is illustrated by a carefully chosen extract from a play and accompanied by a commentary and practical examples of lesson tasks.
This book not only demonstrates drama as an art form and provides ready-to-use material for drama teachers, but highlights how dramatic techniques can be used to inform classroom teaching and develop teacher practice. Featuring a brand new preface by the author to contextualise the book within the field today, this Routledge Classic Edition is an indispensable resource for drama teachers in both primary and secondary schools.
