Dr. David Booth - CODE would like to honour David on the sad one year anniversary of his death December 22, 2018

 David Booth

David Booth was one of the founders of CODE in the 1960's. During his career in education, he taught drama to grade 6, 7 and 8 students, became the drama consultant for Hamilton, and subsequently for the City of York in Toronto. He completed his graduate degree in England studying with Dorothy Heathcote and Gavin Bolton. In 1973, he began teaching at the Faculty of Education at the University of Toronto, where he taught BEd drama courses, AQ drama courses, and later graduate courses in drama and the arts at OISE. He has been on the executive of CODE several times, and has spoken and given many workshops at CODE conferences during the last 50 years. A popular international speaker, David Booth has authored many books and articles on drama in education, and in 2006 was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award by the American Alliance for Theatre and Education. Thank you for your years of service and dedication to CODE.
Professor David Booth
May you rest in peace.
