Drama and Theatre Education


Currently being applied in various teaching areas like Chinese literacy, foreign languages, history and geography and etc., drama and theatre education is particularly vital for humanities. Drama’s unique democratic and open way of teaching helps it not only become humanised, motivational and acceptable in teaching, but also play a constructive role in developing children’s personality, emotion-management ability, teamwork, critical thinking and morality; its colourful, wide-ranging teaching methods as well as art elements inside make it inevitable to foster children’s aesthetic, curiosity, imagination and creativity.

Due to long-term development of art and education concepts, a large amount of manpower and capital spent in research and practice, changes in productivity and production relations and the constantly progressed society, we have no excuse to confine our kids to the conventional teaching and learning mode, such as blind recitation, imitation and copy. Those who say “not to make a bet on kids” and “so much afraid of taking a joke of kids’ future” are actually lazy intellectually. Everyone needs to face the laws underlying social growth, seek means to bridge the gap between institutional flaws and future demands and cultivate imagination, creativity and aesthetic so as to adjust to the uncertain future.

Wealthy practical accumulation of drama and theatre education together with a solid theoretical foundation endows it with considerable possibilities in the future, which makes sense for both educational programs set in governments, schools and educational institutions and those students who determine to treat education as their life-long career. Huge possibilities and rich innovation incorporated in theatres enable them to yield something as big as the civilised system of democracy and also nurture greater wisdom and feelings which are a must in the establishment of a more advanced human civilisation. I hope more people would benefit from it.
