Divided into eight units with each one offering photocopiable resources and exploring a different theme, this book has been updated to reflect current trends in drama teaching and important themes in contemporary society such as: Myths and urban folklore Moral decisions Asylum seekers The transition from primary to secondary school Conflict resolution and propaganda Protest and resistance Medieval plays Transportation Crime and punishment. Each unit provides ideas and lesson plans which can be used as they are or adapted to suit your own particular needs.
