Drama at the Heart of the Secondary School provides a rationale for the curricular centrality of drama together with rich and detailed examples of cross-phase thematic projects which are drama-led, but which promote learning across a wide range of curriculum areas, from the humanities and other arts, to English and literacy, science and PSHE. Each unit explores relevant and stimulating themes and topics that will engage the students, promote empathy, pose questions, and produce creative responses. Starting from relatively simple beginnings, the drama is structured in layers of increasing sophistication and complexity. Each layer adds another dimension to the potential learning opportunities available across a wide range of curriculum areas and suitable for learners of varying experience and ability. A wide range of curriculum areas of enquiry are referenced, and each unit offers unique ways of student learning designed to encourage excellent drama skills as well as embracing the ‘learning to learn’, Citizenship and PSHE agendas that are fundamental to good teaching and learning. Features include: Lists of dramatic techniques and keywords Cross curricular connections and ideas highlighted in the text Opportunities to address RSA ‘Opening Minds’ competencies and PLT skills Examples of curriculum models suitable for thematic work An outline of the principles of assessment for each unit This accessible and practical textbook is essential for trainee and practising teachers interested in using drama to facilitate thematic, cross-curricular work in the classroom.

No other book on teaching has excited me as much as this one. It should be the core text for prospective teachers in any field' -- Jonathan Potter, English and Drama Teacher Camden Hills Regional High School, Rockport, ME 'VanDeWeghe presents powerful instructional practices to help students use both their hearts and their minds in learning' -- Louann Reid, Professor Colorado State University To generate truly compelling learning experiences and increase retention of new information, educators need the knowledge and tools to engage students from both a neurological and humanistic perspective. Richard VanDeWeghe provides an inside look at what happens in students' minds and hearts when they are engaged and "in the groove." Based on Mihaly Csikszentmihaly's idea of "flow"--a state of intrinsic control, curiosity, interest, and inquiry that is the ultimate experiential goal for learning--this book provides holistic strategies for encouraging students to become motivated, engaged learners. Teachers will find: - Information on brain function and memory pathways - Spiritual and emotional principles of the heart that influence learning - Strategies for guiding open-ended discussions, quality questioning, and teacher modeling - Immediate, practical applications for language arts, science, maths, and social studies - Vignettes illustrating effective teacher dialogue and classroom involvement Engaged Learning is a clear, concise, and elegant resource that helps teachers understand what it means to be a highly motivated learner.

"AER 58 surveys the international and national research on the role and effect of arts-rich programming in schools and in the broader community, and examines the policies and practices that inhibit or support these initiatives. It puts the case that embedding the Arts in learning would be a powerful catalyst for educational and social reform in Australia, since arts-rich experiences can benefit students academically and socially, revitalise school curricula and foster the development of much needed creativity and imaginative thinking." -- Back cover.
