The Teaching of Drama in the Primary School, Paperback Book

The Teaching of Drama in the Primary School Paperback

Part of the Effective Teacher, The series


The importance of drama in primary school has been elevated in recent years, with many teachers continuing to make it high priority in their teaching.

They recognise that it can enrich children's understanding of the world and motivate and encourage them in other curriculum work.

This lively and readable book offers a blend of theory and practice based on the author's own considerable experience as a drama teacher.

He provides numerous examples taken from work with children in schools, which will help teachers to prepare for drama sessions in the classroom.

The book examines the role of drama as a subject in its own right as well as its role in delivering other aspects of the curriculum within primary education.

It assumes no prior knowledge of teaching drama and will therefore be useful to trainee teachers and in-service teachers wanting to make use of drama in their daily teaching.
