Nick Mavroudis

Abstract


This paper is focused on the manner drama in education may be applied efficiently for the management of cultural inhomogeneity in the classroom and in groups of children. Research shows that this specific educational methodology has a positive contribution to the development of a wide range of skills of social-emotional development. In an era when cultural diversity in classrooms is more intense than ever, this article proposes theatre-pedagogy practices that establish a collaboration culture in the group and contribute to the acceptance and respect of different religious, national, linguistic and racial identities at school.
