What's in a Name? An Exploration of the Origins and Implications of the Terms "Creative Dramatics" and "Creative Drama" in the United States: 1950s to the Present.
Libman, Karen
Youth Theatre Journal, v15 p23-32 2001
Examines the development of the Children's Theatre Conference's 1956 definition statement, which names the word "creative dramatics." Turns to the 1978 Children's Theatre Association of America position paper, which explicitly moves away from the term "creative dramatics" and advocates, "creative drama." Concludes that the American Alliance for Theatre and Education uses the term "creative drama" to name process-centered drama practices. (SG)
