A Comparative Study of the Integration of Theatre and Drama into Education: Moscow, London, and Los Angeles.
Shipow, Emanuel
This dissertation presents the most educative, feasible, and economical methods for integrating theatre and drama into education. Theatre- and drama-in-education programs in Moscow, London, and Los Angeles were observed, evaluated, and analyzed, and findings synthesized. These data were obtained through readings, questionnaires, interviews, and observations of programs in progress. Robert E. Stake's model for evaluation was utilized to record the intended antecedents, transactions, and outcomes of these programs. These factors were matched for congruence with the observed antecedents, transactions, and outcomes. A relative comparison was then made of the descriptive data from one program to another, with an absolute comparison to standards of excellence. On the basis of the findings in Moscow and London, recommendations were made: creating a position, a Coordinator of Cultural Resources, who would promote theatre and drama in the schools and community; promoting support and subsidy for the theatre by educating the public; building a viable theatre and drama program in the schools; providing assistance in drama to teachers; organizing a volunteer actor-teacher performing company; and enlisting professional companies to perform for students.
