Now in its 4th edition, this is an accessible and comprehensive introduction to the critical study of drama. Using familiar examples of classic and contemporary works such as Shakespeare's King Lear, Ibsen's A Doll's House and Timberlake Wertenbaker's Our Country's Good, the book explores the essential elements of play texts, from character, dialogue and plot to theatrical space. With more in depth guidance on how to study plays in and as performance, both live and in recordings available online, the 4th edition of Studying Plays now includes: · new examples throughout the book drawn from a range of 21st-century plays by established and emergent writers for diverse theatres and companies · new explorations of how plays structure and engage audience response · a complete new section on the analysis of theatre of witness and testimony; monodrama; and postdramatic texts.

Studying Literature

Yet while theatrical performance offers a living interpretation of a play it is , by its
nature , an ephemeral art form . When studying plays you may be unable to see
them performed on stage . But it is always worth making an effort to see as many

This is an accessible and lively introduction to the essential tools for studying a dramatic text. Looking at the four key areas--dialogue, action, character, and space--the book focuses on the specifically dramatic aspects of plays, rather than on purely literary or theoretical concerns. Looking in detail at Death of a Salesman, A Doll's House, and King Lear among many others, the authors set the dramatic texts in their historical context, paying attention to the significance of particular theater buildings, actors, and audiences. Exercises at the end of each section and a glossary will help anyone wanting to learn more about drama.

Despite the large amount of attention that has been paid recently to understanding the determinants of educational outcomes, knowledge of the causal effect of the most fundamental input in the education production function - students' study time and effort - has remained virtually non-existent. In this paper, we examine the causal effect of studying on grade performance using an Instrumental Variable estimator. Our approach takes advantage of a unique natural experiment and is possible because we have collected unique longitudinal data that provides detailed information about all aspects of this experiment. Important for understanding the potential impact of a wide array of education policies, the results suggest that human capital accumulation is far from predetermined at the time of college entrance.

One of the most important things students can learn in school is how to learn. Studying, Test Taking, and Getting Good Grades falls solidly within the "how to learn" category. Taken from a broad variety of disciplines, it goes beyond basic study skills to address motivation, personal responsibility, diet, exercise, the brain, and numerous other topics. This entirely reproducible student activity book is designed to (1) build a base of understanding and skill development in the broad spectrum of learning, studying, and test-taking; (2) provide opportunities for students to apply this knowledge to their own lives; and (3) provide opportunities to practice and discuss new information and skills so students are better prepared to apply these techniques and skills in all subject areas.
