Drama in the modern languages classroom

6 Days

Giulia Baiata

Drama has a huge role in education. It can challenge students’ perceptions about their world and about themselves. It is also a means to develop students’ emotions, thoughts and ideas. It helps generate creativity and critical thinking amongst students. It also makes learning interactive as it encourages exploration of moral issues, societal problems and historical events from multiple angles. This type of learning has a lasting effect on students, preparing them for real-life situations.

Drama has helped societies speak out against injustices and raise awareness about important social matters.

In this course, we will tackle various aspects of drama in the classroom, above all we will address the importance of inclusion, communication and collaboration, especially with the students with special needs. Participants will learn how to manage their students’ emotions and help them solve conflicts through motivation, self-expression and cooperation. Drama gives the spotlight to every student, even the shyest one to find their own voice and to feel the protagonist of their own learning.
