Drama Strategies for English Teaching Why, which, when and how!
DateWed, 2nd March, 2016
Time9:30 am - 3:30 pm
LocationLionwood Junior School, Norwich
All primary teachers of English would benefit from being able to use a range of drama strategies effectively and confidently, as part of their teaching repertoire.
Drama strategies provide a way of structuring learning, that is engaging and inclusive for children. Drama stimulates different types of thinking and talk. It can also be used to explore, comprehend and create different types of texts, e.g. poetry, fiction, non-fiction.
Children are drawn in by the personal, social and emotional aspects of drama. They enjoy and benefit from working creatively, collaboratively and co-operatively together.
This course will:
• Enable participants to experience and evaluate 3 primary ‘Drama for English’ lessons, ( KS1, lower and upper KS2)
• Broaden and deepen participants’ knowledge and practical understanding of a range of effective drama strategies
• Help participants use drama strategies with different text types
• Exemplify how Drama can support and improve children as writers
• Provide a Drama Strategies booklet and KS1 and KS2 published units of work
£160 for 1 place, £300 for 2 places
‘Patrice uses drama conventions to create opportunities for pupils to secure their learning in new and deeper ways. Her course opened doors for colleagues which they would not have believed possible. In everything she does, she walks delegates through the materials, and discusses the impact this has on children’s learning. Absolutely brilliant!’
Mary Myatt, Adviser and Lead Inspector
