Issue 43, Autumn Term 1 2012/13
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 Drama & Theatre Summer 2, we find ourselves in a new world – and have endeavoured to provide readers with comprehensive coverage of opportunities and resources available for teaching and enjoying drama remotely during this period of enforced separation from students. We’ve got features on teaching drama remotely, with expert advice; on the wealth of free live-streamed theatre that’s been made available from all over the world; and on projects designed to keep young people making drama even in isolation.
Our reviews section touches on products and resources that you can access while schools, shops and theatres are closed, and play text coverage will help you to plan learning that you can deliver remotely, as well as productions for when lockdown eases. In anticipation that one day we’ll all be back together, we also report on some projects and initiatives which have operated face-to-face in schools and theatres, and that we hope will continue one day soon.
