Abstract or Description

My research draws on data from focus group interviews with student-teachers which took place near the end of a one-year initial teacher education course. One group was studying to become teachers of secondary English, and the other secondary drama teachers. Both took part in a ‘diamond twelve’ activity highlighting different perspectives on the content and purpose of drama in the English curriculum. The article explores how the participants construct the relationship between their two subjects, and raises questions about the nature and relevance of the continuing association between drama and English that is enshrined in the National Curriculum for England and Wales.
