Ethical tensions in drama teachers' behaviour

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


There are, unfortunately, no simple rules to ensure that teachers are doing the right things all the time. However, there are intuitive ethical behaviours which indicate that doing the right things is not enough; rather, one should aim at doing the things right. This study is based on some observations of expert drama teachers, trying to examine how ethical tensions in a drama teacher’s behaviour are created. Doing things right is examined here through an analysis of an archetypal example, and ethical problems are explored which stem from the blurring of boundaries between ‘real life’and ‘as if’situations in drama sessions in the classroom.
