Student teaching must be complete and must point to development as a society and the pedagogy drama is a mirror that reflects our society.

BOLTON: drama pedagogy is a way to develop relationships of students with their teachers and their environments. It is a negotiation between the two to reach a construction of meanings. in this process the student uses their thoughts and feelings to achieve their goals, involving their body their soul and their heart.

HAWKSLEY: says the biggest contribution Bolton was the elaboration of the strategy of the role of the teacher, which points to the relationship of teacher and student achieving build the construction of meaning.

DAVID HORNBROOK: drama it has to be production and critical interpretation. Students must study the basic element of drama; space, sound, gesture, etc.

Improvisation is a good way to achieve these goals and he believes this is the best way to teach drama. Improvisation is original and comes from being itself, so students can practice this critical drama and examine the structures of society.

On the other hand, he emphasizes what he calls narratives of historical consciousness. This kind of narrative helps us understand, articulate and transform our world. Besides that it helps students celebrate diversity.

BENNETT: BENNET tells us to remember that drama occurs in a social context, and that is a cultural activity. The culture that we build contains knowledge and values and should enhance this drama pedagogy but in turn have to go beyond this. Benet agree with Freire when he says that drama has to be a practice of our freedom.

Then he speaks of critical drama and how we make our students critical form. This way students will be critical and bla bla bla, more of the same, debe ayudar a los estudiantes a mejorar su entorno , ser reflecsivos y analiticos.

The essence of drama is to interact with people, with our environment and our culture. Drama must give meaning to life and learn from our experiences. With drama we can achieve this and develop as people without forgetting how society is also evolving with us.

Finally ends the chapter telling us that educators using drama to teach can go beyond the classroom instruction, your teaching can be meaningful, critical and comprehensive. These teachers develop critical thinking, the historical and social thought. They deliver to students the ability to create and work together and all that.



It is important for critical drama take into account the cultural capital of the students. Teachers must learn about the cultures of their students and build their programs around that. Drama is a vehicle to convey this culture and to achieve develop social relationships. Teachers must strengthen the cultural capital in their students without prioritizing one over the other that the drama critical is.

Also it is important to the drama without the institution because this could come from a culture and want imposed on the other. Finally when speaking teachers or want to express an idea should be very neutral and show no distaste for some culture.


Critical drama is a way to express all our knowledge, to demonstrate our culture and learn from others, it is to recognize the social inequalities and work to balance them. It is a vision of how a being should think individually and in turn know that it belongs to a society. Critical drama should not be unjust or unequal, must show the reality and learn from life experiences. must be practiced, improvisation, should explore the soul, body and heart and above all things should help the development of human beings, make changes and maintain knowledge in constant motion.
