Applying Norah Morgan and Juliana Saxton’s Taxonomy of Personal Engagement (1987), Merit Minds achieves the training and learning outcome through progressive stages of engaging trainees and learners in drama activities.  In the evaluating stage, trainees and learners reflect their feelings and understanding to the fictional context and roles and put their understanding to test against the audience and the real world.
