"Commedia Dell'Arte" as a Metaphor for the Art of Teaching
Morse, Robert A.
Physics Teacher, v53 n7 p392-393 Oct 2015
With my background in acting, stagecraft, and some knowledge of theatre history from high school and college, it was natural for me as a novice teacher to think about theatre as a metaphor for teaching. In this article I will discuss how over my career I conceived of teaching in terms of theatrical metaphors, and make a comparison with a common metaphor of teaching as coaching.
