The Essential Writings
Gavin Bolton has been a leading figure in Drama in Education for over 40 years. His many publications cover the whole area of young people’s educational drama including modes of involvement in drama, drama as an art form, the role of emotion, the role of the teacher, planning and assessment, structuring drama lessons, drama’s place in the curriculum, the history of drama over the past 100 years and its key importance in children’s education today.
His work is of immediate interest and relevance to today’s drama teachers, student teachers, lecturers and everyone seriously interested in the education of young people. He is a seminal figure internationally in the field of drama education and this selection of his key writings provides an insight into all major areas of his theory and practice. There are signs that teachers in the UK are once again being urged to be creative. This will be an essential aid in that process of regeneration.
