This brand new course is presented by Drama Resource in collaboration with the Hellenic Culture Centre.
Suitable for all primary, secondary and adult educators, this unique one-week in-depth course shows you how to use drama games and strategies to engage your students in learning across the curriculum. Drama expert David Farmer guides you through activities which can be applied to sciences, history, geography, literacy, mathematics and the arts. There will be ample time to explore a wide range of theatrical approaches, to discuss common issues with colleagues and devise practical solutions. There will be guided opportunities to create practical lesson plans to use in your own subject area or across the curriculum. You’ll come away with a folder full of effective ideas guaranteed to liven up your lessons.
At the end of the course participants will be invited to join an online community to continue exchanging ideas and materials.
