Our best-selling title is now even better
This handbook does more than just look at the background to theatre. It defines the techniques used in improvisational drama, allowing students to develop a clear understanding of how drama is used. In doing so, it gives them more confidence with practical and written work.
The new, exciting, full-colour edition provides additional valuable material on techniques, plus special sections on:

* Sensitivity, creativity and communication

* Expectations at KS3

* Performance tips
Most of the drama books written for students have concentrated on the background of theatre and have given little space to explaining the techniques used in improvisational drama. This popular book concentrates on defining the techniques, allowing your students to develop a clear understanding of how drama is used and giving them more confidence with their practical and written evaluation work.
Key definitions
The handbook clearly defines the many drama terms (eg freeze-frame, thought tunnel, role-on-the-wall, thought in the head, etc) with the aid of humorous illustrations to give your students a sound basic knowledge of the techniques in drama.
Extra techniques
To supplement all the techniques explained in the first edition, this new edition also covers:

* Secret role-play

* Bringing to life

* Marking the moment

* Giving witness/making a point of view

* Good angel, bad angel

* His/her thoughts

* Fixed space

* Solo thinking

* Narrating

* Turning through the audience

* Amplifying

* Split staging

* Docudrama
At last, your students will have access to a clear understanding of how drama is used in today's schools –: quite simply this is a book that will raise standards of achievement.
The handbook is a must for all GCSE/Performing Arts students. It is also extremely useful for students studying drama at KS3. A-level students and teachers new to drama will also find it useful in familiarising themselves with the techniques used in improvisation work.
