To search for material about teaching drama, use the classic catalogue and search for drama study and teaching. (add either secondary or elementary to be more specific). The subject term college and school drama is also useful. Resources about, and for, teaching drama will be found both at the TFDL (primarily in the PN call number range) and in the Doucette library (call numbers 790-792).

A few example titles are below

                    ...  And don't forget that  Doucette Library has so many great puppets to borrow!
