Where teachers meet and learn

ETAS Journal Special Supplement on Drama and Theater in Education

ETAS Journal invites submissions for its Special Supplement on Drama and Theater in Education Spring Edition 2018.

Do you work with drama and/or theatre in your English language lessons? Researchers and teacher practitioners are invited to share examples of “best practice”, such as (success) stories, a favourite lesson or drama in education method, an aha-moment or challenge experienced in class, or, for example, an action research report.

The ETAS Journal Spring 2018 edition Special Supplement will explore the use and place of drama and theatre in a wide variety of classrooms, from kindergarten to university: We are excited to get a glimpse of how teachers and researchers integrate drama and/or theatre into their practice.

Share your story as an article by May 31st 2017.
