Piecing together the Curriculum Puzzle: Learning through Drama Education.
Current research in primary school drama education provides a complex and challenging stage for playing out current theoretical debates in both education and within the specific field of drama. This paper discusses some of these controversies, in particular, the view that education has a modernist agenda, and the conflict this causes in what many see as a post-modern age. Also of interest is how these philosophies play out in the field of drama education. The focus of the paper will be on the issues faced when attempting to position educational research in drama in relation to definitional issues. It will consider how these are reflected within the journey taken by this researcher when defining and delimiting her research question. Contains 11 references. (Author/RS)
