About this title


To be, or not to be: that is the question. To be a teacher-performer, or not to be? Authors Timpson and Burgoyne assert that teachers are inherently performers and, as such, techniques from the stage enhance and expand their ready repertoire of discipline-based content. <p>While teachers are trained planners and scholars, very few are trained performers! Using performance theory, the authors show how an educator can transform ordinary classroom experiences into occasions that attract and engage the students. </p><p>In this second edition of Teaching and Performing, the authors expand on the possibilities presented by warm-up exercises, role-playing, integrating props and lighting, blocking skills, focusing energy and concentration, and using a variety of other techniques for good teaching (and good theatre!)</p>
