This roundtable aims to look at how drama as pedagogy has been influencing the modern English classroom. Drama as pedagogy is based on using theatre games/techniques in the classroom to support traditional lecture and discussion formats. We will look at the purpose of this teaching style, lesson plans used to promote free expression in literature courses, and how it may be used to create/develop prompts in creative writing courses. Abstracts and biographies should be submitted to Lindsay Bryde, MFA at Lindsay.Bryde@gmail.com.

The conference will take place April 3-6 2014 in Harrisburg, PA as part of the 45th annual NEMLA conference.

Deadline for Abstracts: September 30, 2013.
