Contemporary Theatre in Education

Intellect Books, 2007 - 160 頁
The Theater in Education (TIE) movement emerged in 1960s Britain as a unique hybrid of performance and child-centered learning. Roger Wooster’s Contemporary Theater in Education tells the story of the creation of this dramatic form and its adaptation in a rapidly changing political, economic, and educational environment.
In addition to interviews with prominent TIE directors and discussions of specific projects, this volume offers a snapshot of all the productions held in Wales during a single month during the summer of 2004. As the distinction between TIE and children’s theater becomes even more blurred, this book is an invaluable resource for anyone studying the use of theater in schools. “A most useful, provocative and well-researched theoretical document which I will most certainly have on my essential reading list for students studying theatre in education.”—Charmian Savill, University of Aberystwyth

They face great trials now, and must decide whether they will stick to the values which came to them as perceptions of right and wrong at the first dawn of seriousness (circa six years). The Drama is often used, therefore, for playing out situations in which the individual has to make decisions about morals. By making situations conscious, the Child is able to look at life as an observer and make slow inward decisions....
第 8 頁 - It is through creative arts, including the arts of language, that young people can be helped to come to terms with themselves, more surely than by any other route
