The "State of the Arts" series has showcased current thinking, research practices and historical perspectives in drama education in NSW and beyond for well over a decade. This book continues the journey by providing chapters on issues that are of interest to drama educators. In this publication the Educational Drama Association of New South Wales celebrates the wealth of research and practice emanating from NSW in particular. The contributors, who are some of Australia's leading voices in educational drama, discuss a diverse range of issues including: developing pretexts using computer-based technology; applications of process drama in children's television; using stories to develop authentic texts; multiliteracies in drama; making and understanding texts in drama; drama as embodied learning; video drama and transcodification; drama diversity and risk; and historical perspectives on drama education in NSW.
