Gavin Bolton: The Essential Writings (Members) £20.99 £19.94

For over 40 years, Gavin Bolton has been a leading figure in Drama in Education. His publications cover all aspects of young people's educational drama and this selection of his key writings provides insight into the major areas of his theory and practice, namely:

  • 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 one hundred years and its significance in children’s education today.

Bolton's 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. There are signs that teachers in the UK are once again being urged to be creative. This collection will be an essential aid in the process of regeneration.
