Divided into eight units with each one offering photocopiable resources and exploring a different theme, this book has been updated to reflect current trends in drama teaching and important themes in contemporary society such as:
Myths and urban folklore
The transition from primary to secondary school
Conflict resolution and propaganda
Protest and resistance
Crime and punishment.
Each unit provides ideas and lesson plans which can be used as they are or adapted to suit your own particular needs.
This book will be an invaluable resource for anyone who teaches – or is learning to teach - drama in secondary schools as well as those who work with young people in other drama settings.
