Saturday 9th February 2013, 9.30 – 1.30
Institute of Education, 20 Bedford Way, London WC1H 0AL

Considering recent moves threatening the place of drama in and across the curriculum, we think it important to affirm the centrality of drama to English teaching. This conference will offer practical approaches for teaching that explore and develop the connections between English and drama.
