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 second edition of Drama & Theatre magazine, we explore your students’ career prospects with advice from the Creative Industries Federation and some case-study success stories from former drama students now working outside the theatre industry. We meet Willy Russell, one of the UK’s best-loved playwrights, and explore new theatre work inspired by young people (Youthquake), and featuring them (in the Almeida Young Company).
The Primary section of the magazine introduces an approach to opera for young students and a production bringing children’s classic Oi Frog to the stage; we interrogate the value of High School Editions in the Performing Arts section and explore theatre apprenticeships in the Backstage and Technical section. Plus, a focus on theatre practitioners Forced Entertainment and the introduction of 11 plays for performance or study; and reviews of live and filmed theatre, a workshop and mind-map learning resources.
