This book is extremely useful to teachers in Drama. There are not only clear ideas for lesson exercises but detailed examples for the Drama strategies, Drama Medium and elements of Drama which are so vital to GCSE students. This guide is especially good for teachers who are new to the syllabus or to the GCSE. -- Rachael Iddiols, Woodlands School, Essex 20091106 A useful resource with lots of interesting scripts and pictures to stimulate the pupils. You have a choice of lots of activities and can dip in and out of the book as needed. It also contains lots of tips and useful advice. -- C J Skidmore, Head of Dance and Drama, Wyvern Community School, Somerset 20091105 This textbook explains everything in the correct terminology for the students, encouraging them to use the language of drama. There are suggested exercises at the end of each section to ensure understanding. -- Ruth Wood, The George Ward School, Wiltshire 20091124
