    Description

    The main purposes of this research project are to: (i) increase the local awareness of the potentials and significances of drama education to young children; (ii) enhance the company and kindergarten teachers' capacity to integrate drama as pedagogy in the curriculum; and (iii) investigate various approaches to drama integration in early childhood education. These purposes will be promoted and concretized by initiating a two-year partnership between the kindergartens, the theatre company and the university, and four school and classroom-based studies. In two years’ time and under six phases of collaboration, the project targets 8 kindergartens and their teachers’ practice of drama education. Meanwhile, four studies will be conducted to investigate:
