Drama Worlds examines the complex improvised event called process drama and identifies it as an essential part of today's theatre. Cecily O'Neill considers process drama's sources and its connections with more familiar kinds of improvisation: the texts it generates, the kinds of roles available, its relation to its audience and dramatic time, and the leader's function in the event. She provides examples of several process dramas and identifies dramatic strategies and characteristics. The explicit associations between theatre form and process drama make O'Neill's approach accessible and its purposes and possibilities easy to understand, particularly to those working in actor training and theatre. Teachers and directors alike will discover effective ways of initiating and maintaining the drama world, achieving a significant dramatic experience for all participants.

This book presents research and practice which revitalises Heathcote’s ‘Rolling Role’, an innovative trans-disciplinary model which connects the work of multiple classes to engage in collaborative imaginative work. The original model was developed by legendary teacher Dorothy Heathcote, an educational innovator who gained international fame for her transformational work centred on dramatic framing to activate meaningful and important learning. She developed models that encouraged teachers to curate powerful learning experiences through careful planning, framing, enactment and reflection. Teacher-in-Role and Mantle of the Expert are the most well known of her strategies, approaches where the teacher exercises high selectivity in a range of meditational tools and means, so as to empower students as agents with the power to ‘act’. While the Rolling Role model is less well known, Heathcote herself believed that it had great potential to be realised through using websites and digital technologies. In the wake of her passing and ongoing examinations of her legacy, a practical exploration was initiated to reconceptualise the Rolling Role model through the use of digital platforms. The resulting project, ‘The Water Reckoning’, was an international project which engaged students in exploring ideas related to climate change, water-based catastrophe and human resilience. Further analysis and archival research have informed a deeper understanding of key principles for implementing Rolling Role and its potential for global collaboration and learning. This work has included close analysis of a set of 16 videotapes Heathcote created as a set of consultations for teachers. The book therefore collects together for the first time accounts regarding the historical development of the Rolling Role system, examples of its use and reflections on its application through the use of digital technologies. Rolling Role has the potential to be applied in a wide range of educational contexts with its focus on engaged learning, and learning that ‘matters’.

To this day, Education and Dramatic Art remains the only fully worked critique of drama education in schools. Provocative and iconoclastic, this new edition brings the argument up-to-date and locates the author's proposals for a curriculum based on the making, performing and appraisal of dramas securely in the evolving culture of schools. The first section of the book traces the origins and fortunes of drama in schools in the context of changing political times and argues that by neglecting the customs and practices of the theatre, drama-in-education has often kept from the students it professes to empower, the very knowledge and understanding necessary for them to take command of their subject. Part two examines the developmental and pedagogic claims of drama-in-education. Theories of knowledge and meaning and assumptions about schools drama's power to establish a moral and social agenda, are all called to account. Finally, Education and Dramatic Art proposes a multiculturally-based, theoretical structure for the teaching of drama which pulls the theatre and the classroom together and offers teachers the foundation for a broad and balanced drama curriculum with its own distinctive body of knowledge and skills.

First released in the Spring of 1999, How People Learn has been expanded to show how the theories and insights from the original book can translate into actions and practice, now making a real connection between classroom activities and learning behavior. This edition includes far-reaching suggestions for research that could increase the impact that classroom teaching has on actual learning. Like the original edition, this book offers exciting new research about the mind and the brain that provides answers to a number of compelling questions. When do infants begin to learn? How do experts learn and how is this different from non-experts? What can teachers and schools do-with curricula, classroom settings, and teaching methods--to help children learn most effectively? New evidence from many branches of science has significantly added to our understanding of what it means to know, from the neural processes that occur during learning to the influence of culture on what people see and absorb. How People Learn examines these findings and their implications for what we teach, how we teach it, and how we assess what our children learn. The book uses exemplary teaching to illustrate how approaches based on what we now know result in in-depth learning. This new knowledge calls into question concepts and practices firmly entrenched in our current education system. Topics include: How learning actually changes the physical structure of the brain. How existing knowledge affects what people notice and how they learn. What the thought processes of experts tell us about how to teach. The amazing learning potential of infants. The relationship of classroom learning and everyday settings of community and workplace. Learning needs and opportunities for teachers. A realistic look at the role of technology in education.
