DRAMA IN THE ENGLISH CLASSROOM, PAPERS RELATING TO THE ANGLO-AMERICAN SEMINAR ON THE TEACHING OF ENGLISH (DARTMOUTH COLLEGE, NEW HAMPSHIRE, 1966). THE DARTMOUTH SEMINAR PAPERS.
BARNES, DOUGLAS, ED.
THIS DISCUSSION OF DRAMA, DRAWN FROM PAPERS AND IDEAS PRESENTED AT THE DARTMOUTH ANGLO-AMERICAN SEMINAR ON THE TEACHING OF ENGLISH, EMPHASIZES THE NEED FOR DRAMATIC ACTIVITIES AND PRESENTS METHODS OF EFFECTIVELY TEACHING DRAMA IN THE SECONDARY CLASSROOM. THE FIRST CHAPTER EXPLORES THE TYPE OF EDUCATION MOST EFFECTIVE FOR A STUDENT LIVING IN A DEMOCRACY AND THEN ANALYZES THE WAY CREATIVE DRAMATICS, THROUGH TEACHING IDENTIFICATION WITH VARIOUS ROLES, CAN CONTRIBUTE TO SUCH AN EDUCATION. THE SECOND CHAPTER BRIEFLY OUTLINES A STEP-BY-STEP PLAN FOR ENCOURAGING STUDENTS TO PARTICIPATE IN DRAMATICS. IN THE THIRD CHAPTER, THIS PLAN, WHICH EXTENDS FROM STUDENT DISCUSSIONS OF PLAYS THROUGH GROUP ACTING PROJECTS TO SHAKESPEAREAN PRODUCTIONS, IS DISCUSSED IN DETAIL, WITH EMPHASIS PLACED ON THE VALUE OF SEQUENTIAL PROGRESS. RECOMMENDATIONS FOR GIVING TEACHERS THE TRAINING NECESSARY TO CARRY OUT SUCH A PLAN OF EDUCATION IN DRAMA ARE PRESENTED IN THE FINAL CHAPTER. INCLUDED IN APPENDICES ARE A SYLLABUS FOR SECONDARY SCHOOL DRAMA AND APPROACHES FOR PRIMARY SCHOOL DRAMA.
