Item description for Acting Religious: Theatre As Pedagogy in Religious Studies by Victoria Rue...
Overview Acting Religious, a practical handbook, maps a new approach that uses theatre to teach religion. For many years, Rue has used Theatre techniques and plays to introduce students to what she calls the "experience" of religion, showing how theatre makes theological ideas palatable, visceral, and available. Experienced and beginning teachers at both college and high school levels, as well as religious educators, will learn how to use the techniques of improvisation, characterization, or theology classroom. From these methods, students will be able to engage religious traditions experientially as well as cognitively.
