In this new and updated edition, Patrice Baldwin brings together key findings from brain research and best practice to highlight the benefits that drama and imagined experience can have on learning, creativity, thinking skills, memory, motivation and self-esteem, and explains why and how drama supports learning. Patrice Baldwin advocates an holistic approach to learning based on personal, social and emotional growth, and argues that drama can be a means of developing potential in both the teacher and learner. The book includes sound advice on planning and managing drama across the curriculum from ages 5-14, and carefully annotated schemes of work complete with photocopiable resource sheets and online templates. Both experienced teachers of drama and non-specialists will appreciate the up-to-date research, new pedagogic examples, multisensory drama techniques and links to contemporary developments in education, such as play-based learning, learning outside the classroom and Philosophy for Children (P4C). With Drama in Mind is an invaluable source of inspiration for revitalising your teaching and stimulating pupils' imaginations.
