ABSTRACT
Constructivism is an interpretive approach that emphasises the 'meaning-making activity of the individual mind'. It is of particular relevance to drama education because learning in drama is based in process. A number of writers and researchers have applied this approach to learning, but only a few have extended this into a discussion of drama and learning. In this article an understanding of constructivism is described then evaluated through reference to two drama projects -- firstly, the scripting of a crosscultural performance work; secondly, a research project on applied creativity for beginning teachers.
