Drama into the curriculum: Sisyphus’ work
2015 (English)In: NJ (Drama Australia journal), ISSN 1445-2294, Vol. 39, no 1, 3-18 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The conditions for drama in compulsory education vary from country to country. The situation in Queensland, Australia, is interesting as Drama was introduced as an arts subject in the compulsory school curriculum (P-10) in 2002. This paper uses a case study approach, to describe and analyses the context and conditions for this specific curriculum development project. Findings suggest that curriculum development is unlikely to be a predictable and linear process, and to some extent, curriculum documents are reflecting changes that have already occurred. The author proposes a list of considerations which may be of benefit to drama educators in a range of curriculum contexts.
