Starting points

If you have never taught drama before, where do you begin? This chapter suggests ways of getting started, using stories and poems, photographs and pictures to provide a strong stimulus for the teacher and the children. It includes several short examples of work in practice. The practical work and the suggestions given here should be read in conjunction with the next two chapters (‘Working methods’ and ‘Organisation and development’), where many of them are amplified and discussed further.
