Why Drama? One Teacher's Reflections and Responses to Mallika Henry's "Drama's Ways of Learning."
Young, David L.
Research in Drama Education, v6 n1 p101-05 Mar 2001
Responds to an article in an earlier issue of this journal which proposes that drama educators should cultivate and provide students with opportunities to analyze, reflect upon, and reconcile daily human life experiences. Proposes that drama curriculum is a product of each teacher's abilities credibly to deliver basic elements of their own humanity to their students, and through this unique sharing, the actual language of drama is formed.
