Publication date: 30 Apr 15

The State of the Art: Teaching Drama in the 21st Century presents cutting-edge scholarship from leading drama education in New South Wales. This collection features discussions that are directly relevant to drama teachers in primary and secondary schools, artists and theatre makers, drama education researchers and those interested in the relevance of arts and drama education in reforming the curriculum. The book reminds of the connection between practice and research in drama education, and reflects changes in curriculum and new areas of research on:

  • playwriting
  • improvisation and play building
  • young people as audiences
  • technology and drama education
  • dialogue in drama education
  • the opportunities for drama as a curriculum change event

The scholarship assembled here reflects some of the best and most insightful reflections on how research can directly inform the transformation of learning and teaching.
