Description

An introduction to the field of creative drama for teachers of any age group or population, this text by a nationally known scholar, theatre artist and educator, has long been anticipated. Professor Kase-Polisini draws from unparalleled research in the field, both here and abroad. She recently directed the International Symposium on Creative Drama for the Children's Theatre Association of America, conducted in Canada and the United States, at five university sites. Her book describes what creative drama is, why it works with any group of people from the very young to the very old, healthy or handicapped, in school, recreational, or theatre art, clarifying why an understanding of theatre is helpful to the teacher. Following an examination of dramatic play, she describes the fundamentals and basic procedures used by creative drama teachers. Her book is unique in its extensive presentation of three distinctive teaching methods, created by masters of the field, with descriptions of specific lessons for each method. Her book is also unique in devoting an entire chapter to the "creative" in creative drama. The bibliography is the most extensive published to date. Hardcover. 8 1/4 x 9 1/2—260 pages
