Reviews of Pupils as Playwrights
"This is a well-produced book, written by Brian Woolland, a highly experienced and well-published teacher, playwright and scholar. It is written for a readership of primary teachers, and it is accessible, thoughtful and soundly grounded in classroom practice. This is a timely publication in that it advocates the integration of different aspects of learning within the primary curriculum, and shows how drama might contribute to literacy.
The book ... has a consistency and thoroughness of approach which means that it is accessible and lively to read. It is likely to inspire teachers and children and I thoroughly recommend it to anyone who is interested in integrating drama into the primary curriculum."
