Theatre/Drama and the Development of the Greek Curriculum: Coercion or Liberty?
Research in Drama Education, v21 n1 p90-92 2016
This vignette focuses on Theatre/Drama in the Greek curriculum. Issues for consideration are presented, such as the minimal space for active learning through theatre, the limited opportunity of teachers to work as critical pedagogues and the problematic conceptual framework. A main issue is the fragmented implementation as Theatre/Drama is not provided continuously and progressively. Evidence as well as international advocacy through official documents is a proof to convince policy-makers to create a stable place for Theatre/Drama in the curriculum. There is a need to take forward the challenge of theatre in schools as a central contribution to both curriculum development and future building.
