You don't have to be a drama specialist to tap into its benefits but, while recognising drama as a powerful tool for learning, a high proportion of teachers don't see a place for it in their classroom or subject. A further group feels unconfident about trying it; others have dipped a toe in the water and aren't sure where to go next. The extensively illustrated "Drama for Learning Pocketbook" is for all these teachers. It provides a 'wardrobe of techniques' which they can try on for size, starting with drama games, and moving through chapters on narrative; character; stylisation; analogies; and dilemmas and options before finishing with a section on using props and 'teacher in role'. Each chapter explains several different techniques (eg: 'role on the wall', 'alter ego', 'gossip circle' and 'hot-seating', are among those explored in the section on character), all with illustrative examples. Next come ideas banks with suggested applications in music, art and design; literature; science; modern foreign languages; humanities; PE/games and social sciences. All ideas can be adapted for the full primary and secondary age range.
