Differentiating for Gender in the Drama Classroom.
Research in Drama Education, v6 n2 p223-29 Sep 2001
Proposes the secondary drama classroom is a powerful arena for exploring the politics of gender. Suggests that a policy for Equal Opportunity which takes a purely binary perspective of sexual identity, focusing on the boy/girl dichotomy, is fundamentally oppressive. Concludes that it is only by making cultural issues of oppression explicit and open to examination within the curriculum, that a school can offer a truly emancipatory vision to its pupils. (SG)
