Dramatic Learning in the Primary School
Library Shelf Location 08.CREA
Publication Date Jun 2005
Description A series of four booklets detailing how the use drama can support creative learning and the development of children’s language and thinking skills, told through the story of Bexhill Primary School in Sunderland. From the spring of 2003 through the school year 2004, two scholars, Shirley Brice Heath and Shelby Wolf, looked closely at how language, attention, inspiration, and collaboration within Bexhill Primary School changed through artistic partnership. Their work brought teachers, artists, and students into the research process as questioners, data interpreters, and readers and respondents assessing the results as set forth in this series of booklets. The research upon which 'Dramatic learning in the primary school' is based includes transcripts and fieldnotes recorded and analysed during the year and reported here through thematic patterns. Academic publications of the Learning for creative futures series will report detailed comparative analyses of language and cognitive development in the context of specific features of creative learning environments.
