Getting Started with ‘Drama for Learning’ – The Basics
ABOUT THE COURSE
This course is designed for teachers who want to learn how to use ‘Drama for Learning’ with confidence. ‘Drama for Learning’ as an approach will be explained and participants will receive guidance on how to first negotiate a ‘Drama Contract’ with their class. Twelve key drama strategies will be explained, with examples of ways that they have been used within various lessons.
One or more primary drama lessons will then be presented, ‘step by step’ (depending on the time available) and the main learning opportunities and intentions of the lesson/s will be outlined. The shifting roles and functions of the teacher at different points during the lesson will also be considered, and how teachers can choose to approach and use Teacher-in-Role in different ways, for various purposes.
