Drama for Learning: A two-part learning series for performing arts teachers.

This course will help teachers and theatre educators learn how Drama Strategies can be intentionally selected and used as ‘Talk Frames’, in ways that can help children to develop their oracy skills across the curriculum.

Drama strategies offer various configurations, groupings and opportunities for children to talk, listen and respond, (both in and out of role).

Well sequenced strategies can also be used to develop a whole class drama, within which there are reasons for talking in various ways, to responsive listeners.

A primary drama lesson will be  presented in steps, with the oracy opportunities highlighted and explained.
