This much needed text provides models constructed by leading researchers in the field and presented at the International Drama in Education Research Institute Conference in 2004. Each chapter in this collection from across the Anglophone world describes a different research methodology.

This book will be of major interest to student teachers, teachers, lecturers and researchers. It provides a case for an integrated approach to the teaching of drama in primary and secondary schools that will help practitioners develop a theoretical rationale for their work. It also offers practical examples of lesson plans and schemes of work designed to give pupils a broad and balanced experience of drama. These are presented within a framework that argues for an integration of content and form, means and ends, and internal and external experience. Whereas the author's previous work argued for an inclusive approach that reconciled polarized views about performance drama and improvisation, this book shows how those activities can be related to each other in practice in an integrated curriculum.
