Drama as a Tool in Education.
Hardy, Sister Marie Paula
Psychological, aesthetic, and pedagogical justifications for using drama in education are discussed. An examination of Dorothy Heathcote's method and a practical discussion of moves in beginning and continuing dramatic activity are discussed. Mrs. Heathcote is a Drama Staff Tutor, Institute of Education, University of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. The study presents specific exercises to help teachers use the experiences attained while teaching children and to structure on-going extemporaneous situations that arrest attention, that place pressure for language development, and that require children to use past experiences. There are separate chapters on drama in literature and history classes, a chapter discussing several video tapes of Mrs. Heathcote working with students at all levels of education, and a chapter on training teachers in the use of drama. Criteria for evaluating progressions in drama-growth are discussed. (Author/LL)
