ABOUT THE COURSE
Drama has many associated strategies that can be selected and used purposefully and collaboratively by teachers, at various stages of the writing process. Different strategies can be used with whole classes, to stimulate and scaffold different types of thinking, inter-thinking and talk.
Drama can also provide meaningful contexts and content, for writing individually and collaboratively in and out of role, for a variety of purposes and audiences.
THIS COURSE WILL
• Introduce participants practically, to a broad range of interactive strategies, that teachers can use afterwards with groups and whole classes
• Help participants understand how to select and set up different drama strategies, in ways that support children’s thinking and talk (with writing in mind)
• Consider how different types of writing can be stimulated, required and developed, within drama contexts and imagined worlds
• Enable participants to experience and evaluate KS1 and KS2 ‘Drama for Thought, Talk and Writing’ lessons
• Provide resources, including a Drama Strategies booklet and KS1 and KS2 published units of work plus free online access to other lessons
Patrice Baldwin will lead the day, (which is mainly practical). She will also share the theory underpinning the practice and the process.
Helen Wilson is Deputy Headteacher of Clifford Road Primary School, Ipswich and has successfully implemented Drama as a way of improving writing. She will share writing examples and outcomes
