Drama and Education

Level 6 (30 credits)

In what ways might we teach about and through Drama? How and why is learning through Drama so powerful? What are the cultural, ethical and political contexts of Drama education? You will learn about the key thinkers on teaching and learning through Drama, the history of Drama as a school subject and extra-curricular activity, and the current state of play regarding the position of Drama in UK school, youth theatre and university contexts. The module will involve the practical development of pedagogically grounded ideas and activities, and include a school-based or youth theatre research placement.
