Drama strategies – also known as drama techniques or drama conventions – are the everyday tools of the drama teacher. They help to develop enquiry skills, to encourage negotiation, understanding and creativity. They can enhance performance skills such as character development and storytelling and be used across the curriculum to actively involve students in their own learning.
REALLY appreciate all you do for the teaching profession and helping us to bring theatre and fun into the classroom! You are an inspiration and help us inspire our students. Huge thanks!
‘I was particularly inspired by how to manage teaching Shakespeare and the real emotion provoked by the refugee unit! I will be rewriting our schemes of work to incorporate as many new ideas as possible.’
‘I took two classes of year 3 students through ‘The King’s Sentence’ on Friday. They absolutely loved it and it has provided them and their English teacher with a platform to explore storytelling writing. Your imagination is inspirational!’
‘Your course was a revelation for us and has given us so many new ideas to use with the children. The Tiger Child story has become a firm favourite among the pupils and you gave us the confidence to try new things and to trust in the teacher-in-role technique, which the children love!’
You inspired and challenged us to be better teachers. You taught us how effective drama can be to get our students’ attention and make our lessons fun for them. You gave us new teaching tools and helped us feel we can make a difference in our students’ lives. Thank you.
