Dorothy Heathcote – inspiration for teachers of drama in education

If you haven’t caught up with the work of Dorothy Heathcote here is a great place to start. I refer to Sandra Heston’s PhD about Dorothy. Sandra’s own intro reads thus;

Sandra Hesten

Dr Sandra Hesten’s Ph.D thesis, provides a central framework for access and understanding of the archive material, and informs the wider interpretative overview of Heathcote’s methodology: Its sources are drawn from information and material gathered through interviews, background notes and informal conversations with Heathcote and those who knew her over two decades. The reader is guided through a labyrinth of information providing a global perception of a drama-in-education tradition. Continuing close collaboration between Hesten and Heathcote has ensured the authentication of much of the material contained therein.

All postings to this site relate to the central SunWALK model in the PhD.
