Since ancient times, schools have served as sites of dramatic performance in society. Only this century, however, have teachers begun to recognize the value of dramatic role-play simulation as a generic pedagogical tool for teaching a wide variety of subjects ranging across the curriculum from psychology to political science. This essay explores public argument role-play as a pedagogical method with broad curricular applicability and unique potential to open up valuable avenues of learning.
