About this title


For years, Dorothy Heathcote's innovative "Mantle of the Expert" approach has benefited students and teachers all over the world. Mantle of the Expert starts with a problem or task, and, in role, teachers and students explore what knowledge they already have while making new discoveries along the way.

Drama for Learning pushes the boundaries of learning, using drama to create an impetus for productive learning across the curriculum, from language arts to history, math, and science. Any one thing taught becomes meshed within broad curriculum knowledge and skills.

About the Author:

Gavin Bolton is a graduate of Sheffield University. He taught for thirteen years to various groups of students, from elementary and secondary to sight and hearing impaired. In 1958, Gavin became Deputy Principal of Secondary Schools. In 1961, he took the position of Drama Advisor to the Education Authority in County Durham. He joined the staff of Durham University in 1964 and taught there until his retirement in 1989. He is currently an Adjunct Professor at Victoria University in British Columbia, and a visiting professor at New York University and the University of Central England at Birmingham.

Dorothy Heathcote studied theatre in the Northern Theatre School in Bradford, with Esme Church and Rudolph Laban. After working freelance for several years, she taught at the University of Durham and later at the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. For thirty-six years, Dorothy was a tutor to the advanced course in Education Through Drama at Masters and Diploma levels until her retirement. During most of that time, she traveled abroad, teaching in many countries, primarily at universities throughout the United States and Canada.
