Designed as a practical guide for teachers, this handbook presents ways of introducing drama and movement into secondary school curricula. A basic program for a movement class is offered, based on three objectives: one's own movement, secondary or underlying motives, and the balance of freedom and discipline. In the first section of the book, seven lesson plans are given which focus on establishing signals, exploring space, changing level and direction, speed and balance, mechanical movement, quality of movement, and sound and shape. The second section of the book deals with specific problems including environment, discipline, inhibitions, improvisations, ideas and age levels, psychodrama, moving to music, and the arena stage. The third section of the book deals with the development of hands, voice, mime, and daydreams. (TS)
