Rainer and Lewis present a series of new, exciting and challenging practical units for teaching drama in the modern classroom. The tried and tested units of work in this book are placed in the context of current ideas about classroom practice. The authors present a new model of how teachers can draw together the various methodologies of process drama and traditional theatre teaching. The flexible content makes the book suitable for specialist and non-specialist drama teachers. Newly trained teachers, student teachers and those new to drama will feel supported by the full, detailed layout. Experienced teachers will find the main benefit of the book as a springboard into their own drama teaching around the themes and topics given, and as a means of clarifying theoretical concepts.
