Educational drama in education for sustainable development: ecopedagogy in action

Educational drama in education for sustainable development: ecopedagogy in action | Education for Sustainable Development | Scoop.it

by Marie Jeanne McNaughton

 

This paper presents an overview of a research project based on the hypothesis that educational drama might be a useful medium for teaching and learning in environmental, sustainable development and global citizenship education.

 

Central to the project, an ethnographic case study employing a multi‐case approach, based on three research questions, was a series of drama–ESD lessons, taught to three classes of 10–11 year old children in three primary schools in the West of Scotland.

Data were gathered using a range of instruments: interviews; observation schedules; pupil evaluations; research‐practitioner reflective field notes; and video‐recordings of the lessons.

 

The final section of the paper suggests that there are many pedagogical approaches common to educational drama and ESD and that, indeed, a range of dramatic techniques and conventions can be an important addition to the repertoire of active learning approaches employed by the ESD educator.
