This book gives us a close-up detailing of this gifted, dynamic teacher in a variety of classroom settings, along with analyses of Heathcote's remarkable improvisations with young people.

"This book profoundly altered my own teaching and gave me a glimpse of what it is possible to achieve through drama. Heathcote's approach to drama has inspired teachers in every classroom where active and authentic learning is valued. I am confident that this fascinating picture of a remarkable educator at work will continue to motivate and challenge new generations of teachers and learners."-Cecily O'Neill, from the Foreword "We all welcome this perceptive revision of B.J.Wagner's classic account of Dorothy Heathcote's teaching. It reads as fresh as ever and is a timely reminder of Heathcote's genius."-Gavin Bolton
