The Theatre of the Classroom: A Work in Progress. How Can I Meet the Needs of Everyone in the Class When I Also Have to Deal with the Pupils with Problems?

  • David Crabtree
Part of the Management for Professionals book series (MANAGPROF)


The focus of David’s case study is the Theatre of the Classroom, and, by this, he means everything that happens between teachers and pupils during lessons. He uses this concept alongside reflective practice to help educators plan and prepare to meet the needs of all pupils especially those who learn differently. His work has taken him to Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Europe. The question that sparks most discussion is ‘How can I meet the needs of everyone in the class when I also have to deal with the pupils with problems?’ The content of the case study will spotlight the key characteristics for educators to focus their attention upon in order to create inclusive teaching and learning. David declares that, ‘In this theatre, let us create stars’.
