Review of Research on Drama in Turkish Schools and Pre-service Teacher Education

Sibel Akın


The purpose of this study was to analyze and synthesize national research studies on drama in pre-service teacher education and primary or secondary schools in terms of their purpose, methodology, and findings. Considerable part of 42 studies demonstrated that they mainly aimed to investigate the effects of drama on mathematics, science and technology, social sciences, and languages. On the other hand, a small number of them were carried out with pre-service teachers, revealing that they primarily focused on the attitudes and views of pre-service teachers and their improvement through drama. Majority of the research employed quantitative methodologies. Based on the findings and international research on drama, implications were discussed for further research and practice.
