A Research Study to Seek New Theatre Arts' Materials in European Countries and to Develop These Materials for Use in Theatre Education at Elementary and Teacher Training Levels. Summary, Theatre Arts' Materials' Research.
Siks, Geraldine Brain
This summary of a final report concerns a project that dealt with the problem of inadequate materials for use in theatre arts education at elementary and teacher training levels. Research during an eight-month period consisted of seeking, examining, assessing, and procuring materials in four large European areas. The status of children's drama as a theatre art throughout Europe may be attributed to the following factors: cultural tradition, subsidy, artistic quality, plays, philosophy, and creative and educational drama. The present position of children's drama in the United States appears to be due fundamentally to a lack of theatre tradition and a lack of philosophy that aims to provide theatre arts education for children and youth. The materials from abroad have potential use in the children's drama field in the United States. The complete final report contains 14 references and three appendixes. The appendixes list theatre materials, creative dramatic materials, and children's drama personnel. (DB)
