Describes a powerful professional development approach that merges the scholarship of critical pedagogy with the 'Theatre of the Oppressed'. Participants 'act up' in order to explore real-life scenarios and rehearse difficult conversations they may have with colleagues, students, administrators, and parents. They include step-by-step instructions and vivid photographs to help readers use these revolutionary theatre strategies in their own contexts for a truly unique learning experience.
