Quality Learning through Process Drama

Process drama is a radical, transformative pedagogy that engages a broad range of students, including those whose learning styles do not match the dominant educational philosophies of most school environments. This project aims to identify why process drama engages students; the uses experienced drama teachers make of drama teaching strategies in process drama to improve learning for all students; Categorise how each dramatic strategy is best employed to achieve maximum quality learning and establish how experienced drama teachers decide which strategy to use at each point of development of a process drama.
