'This chapter explores the potential for using educational drama (sometimes called drama pedagogy) to explore difficult texts in the classroom. [...] By 'difficult texts' we mean both texts that include difficult vocabulary or complex narrative structures, as well as texts that are 'difficult' because they address potentially controversial issues, sometimes avoided in the classroom' (p. 161) [Authors' abstract]
