Using Drama Strategies to Deepen Whole Class Learning


This new course is based on my latest book, ‘40+ ‘Drama’ Strategies to Deepen Whole Class Learning,’ (Routledge, April 2024).

Teachers will be introduced to a range of strategies, that can be used during the teaching of any subject. The different configurations and protocols that various strategies employ, will be explained and how they can be framed by teachers, to scaffold thinking and enable talk. Clear instructions will be given about how to set up, adapt and sequence strategies, to deepen learning and make it more memorable.

Online course sessions will enable some of the strategies to be explained, whereas school-based sessions will enable participants to try out some of the strategies together, during the session.
