Making a Drama out of Transition: Challenges and Opportunities at Times of Change
Hammond, Nick
Research Papers in Education, v31 n3 p299-315 2016
This case study explored how teachers and children perceive challenges and opportunities at transition. Using Forum Theatre (FT), an interactive drama approach, children were able to show aspects of transitions they perceived as challenging and how these barriers may be overcome. FT offered a tangible reference point for children to discuss their experiences and perceptions of transition during follow-up focus groups. A semantic deductive thematic analysis led to a range of emotional, social and systemic challenges and opportunities being identified. The paper concludes with reflections on potential implications for practice and suggestions for future research.
