Dramatic Starts

“This book goes much further than being a handbook for drama. It outlines a host of interesting and thoughtful ways of helping pupils, who need more time and space than others, to explore themselves, their responses and their relationships. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to all teachers who work creatively with children” Steve Welton former Headteacher, Birkett House School.
