An essential teaching resource offering ideas and inspiration for all drama education practitioners
Twice each term of the academic year, Teaching Drama brings you practical strategies, lesson plans, and inspiration to enhance your teaching. News keeps you up to date with developments in the theatre world; reviews help you to plan theatre trips, discover new resources or stock up your library; and features explore inspirational drama education initiatives all over the UK and internationally.
Whether you teach in a school context at primary or secondary level, lead extra-curricular drama workshops, or give private tuition, Teaching Drama is an invaluable resource written for teachers by teachers, playwrights, practitioners, and the stars of the theatre world.
In the new-look Drama & Theatre magazine, we explore the work of British theatre practitioner Complicité; Frantic Assembly turns 25; how to get an A/A* in the GCSE scripted performance exam; and Matthew Bourne pushes the boundaries of modern dance with New Adventures.
Plus, award-winning set designer Sophie Jump; the power of mask work; introducing students to lighting; using drama to make language learning a more interactive experience for primary and early years; Rose Bruford College takes actor-musicians in schools; cybersafety through theatre; and the RADA Shakespeare Awards.
