Balancing and unbalancing : improvising a process drama program Atchison, Julie Lynne


A lengthy reflection and interpretation of six months of a grade seven, eight, and nine drama teacher's practice, the thesis focuses on the interpersonal relations between the teacher and her students. Using process drama as a foundation for developing knowledge of the self in the world, the pedagogy of this teacher also attempts to de-mystify the drama process for her students, and engage them in thoughtful presentational drama. In a series of ten stories interspersed with poetry and personal anecdotes, the topics of curriculum, assessment, professional development, drama pedagogy, and working and learning conditions are analyzed through a feminist, poststructuralist lens.
