Abstract:

"Despite strong evidence that playwriting is both an engaging and rewarding activity for young people, it is still under-utilised in the classroom. Teaching Playwriting is an essential resource for teachers wanting to gain the skills and confidence necessary to introduce playwriting to their students. Based on rich research and clearly explained theoretical concepts, the author explores the lessons from creativity theory that will provide the teacher with the skills and knowledge necessary to empower students' writing and creativity. Exploring key concepts in playwriting such as idea, dialogue, character, action and structure, the book will enable teachers to respond to the unique learning needs of their students and help them tell their stories and reach their potential as young playwrights"--
