About this title

Synopsis:

We're confident that this new edition of Betty Jane Wagner's seminal work will be welcomed by drama educators throughout the English-speaking world. Heathcote's work has been profoundly influential in that world. Until the publication in 1976 of Dorothy Heathcote: Drama as a Learning Medium, however, Heathcote's techniques - the pedagogy of drama - lacked full explanation. Wagner's book gives us just that: a close-up detailing of this gifted, dynamic teacher in a variety of classroom settings, along with analyses of Heathcote's remarkable improvisations with young people.

Indeed, much of Betty Jane Wagner's book can fairly be described as drama within a drama. It's an engrossing work, for we listen and watch as Heathcote elicits drama of their own making from students across grade levels and disciplines. Wagner's goal is to share with teachers how they, using Heathcote's methods, can generate significant learning experiences.

About the Author:

Betty Jane Wagner is a professor in the College of Education at Roosevelt University and director of the Chicago Area Writing Project. She is an internationally recognized authority on composition instruction and the educational uses of drama.
