Description In this workshop, participants will develop their practical experience of devising and performing drama so as to enhance their ability to use drama creatively with secondary students. Participants will have the opportunity to:
participate in drama exercises that can be used to encourage students to collaborate creatively;
participate in drama activities that can be used to encourage students to devise a drama creatively using devising techniques, physical expression, objects and space;
devise and perform a short drama in a small group;
practise evaluating the drama process; and
discuss how they can apply these ideas in their own context.
This experiential workshop welcomes teachers who want to instill more creative and imaginative elements into drama performances either
in class or in preparation for drama competitions.
Participants will be put into learners’ roles to experience the workshop content and then will be given time to consider how they can transfer
the skills they learn and apply in their own context.
This workshop may help teachers to prepare for the NET Section’s ‘Stories on Stage’ Drama Competition and parts of the workshop will
also be applicable to the NET Section’s ‘Speak Up – Act Out’ Improvised Drama Competition.
Participants must wear practical clothing and shoes. Some of the activities will require participants to sit and lie on the floor.
As we will be experimenting with using objects in drama, participants must bring an umbrella with them to the workshop.
