One of the English-speaking world's leading drama educators skilfully demonstrates how classroom drama can be used as an exciting medium for integrating learning across the curriculum, so that students of all ages discover fresh perspectives in their understanding of the world in which they live, and different ways of expressing their thoughts and ideas. In this way, bridges are built between the arts in general, (and drama in particular), and other areas of the curriculum. Patrick Verriour is convinced that drama has a powerful role to play in facilitating change within the classroom, seeing it as absolutely central to all students' learning.

Patrick Verriour was born in Devon, England, where he received his early training in drama education with David Kemp and Brian Way at St. Luke's College, Exeter. In addition to acting and directing for adult audiences, he was also a member of a children's theater group taking drama into the schools. Since leaving England he has taught drama in Nigeria and Canada at all classroom levels. Now an associate professor at the University of British Columbia, Patrick has developed four highly successful drama in education courses there. He has given countless workshops on the use of drama across the curriculum, has written extensively on drama and language development as well as on drama in the multilingual and multicultural classroom, and was guest editor of an award winning Drama in Education issue of Theory Into Practice. But, above all, Patrick remains passionately committed to a wider recognition of the role of all the arts in children's and young people's education.
