Is this an in-depth course?
What's the difference between this workshop and your course The Inspiring Drama Teacher? I can't decide which one to sign up for.
So what does the in-depth course offer? And do I get a discount?
My full course teaches you a lot more strategies for using drama, provides you with worksheets, resources, videos and exclusive lesson plans to keep you going. There’s a lot more besides.
I’m constantly updating the course to include additional videos, examples and lesson plans. If you’re struggling with any problems around drama teaching then I can help to discuss your issues with you and will often create new material for you to use.
If you love the Drama Boot Camp and want to continue working with me on drama teaching, you’ll receive a special invitation to join The Inspiring Drama Teacher Part Two. If you decide to enrol in the full course, you will receive a generous discount!
