Title: Drama - Learning Connections in Primary Schools
Author: Poston-Anderson, Barbara
Price: $79.95

Drama: Learning Connections in Primary Schools, 2e, takes a problem-based approach to integrating drama with other creative arts, and provides pre-service teachers with classroom-tested activities for teaching drama to children in primary, upper primary and middle-school years.

The book combines a strong research foundation with 'stories from the field' to examine the learning connections that can be made with drama, and develops strategies for incorporating the use of drama across the curriculum.

Written for both pre-service teachers and experienced teachers working within English and creative arts curricula, the book encourages a view of drama as a learning tool as well as an art form. With its focus on evaluation and assessment within a practice framework, students learn how to develop an integrated drama programme, which is an invaluable basis for developing teaching and learning programmes in general.

The new edition contains a wealth of activities for students, and is an invaluable tool for pre-service teachers well after they graduate and into their career. The new chapter on integrating drama and technology looks at new ways teachers can explore drama and the implications of learning in a digital age.
