Patrice Baldwin gives an overview of the way drama links to learning, teaching and the curriculum. It will help those who need to connect with the rationale for drama in and across the curriculum and who need to plan for it and explain it to others in terms of its necessity and impact.
The book offers guidance that will facilitate schools' work on self-evaluation, preparing for Ofsted, drawing up school development plans and drama policies. With exemplar lessons for each of the year groups across KS1-KS3, this is a highly practical book that has something to offer all who work in or with primary and secondary schools.
