This is an accessible and up-to-date guide to best practices in theatre education. It is a revised and amplified edition (previously published by Heinemann). It encompasses the author's recent interviews with 140 teachers. It includes hands-on activities and lesson plans. There is no one-size-fits-all way to keep pace with the changes affecting high school students and those who educate them. That's why Signs of Change draws on the author's interviews with over 250 real teachers, all coping with the shifting demands of theatre education. The book paints a portrait of active, dynamic professionals who build vibrant programmes and confront challenges in a variety of ways - from inclusive, interactive lessons to comprehensive programmes that address the impact of poverty, race, gender, and spirituality on students' lives.
