Exploring a Distinct Oracy Pedagogy to Deepen our Drama Practice
This will be an interactive, on line, workshop in which we will explore how a distinct oracy pedagogy can deepen our drama practice. It’s also relevant to English teachers as well as any teacher wanting to enrich their curriculum.
- Our purpose as teachers built on core values
- We will explore an example of an interactive assembly. In doing so, participants will use a range of fresh, innovative oracy strategies that can be used in their drama practice. It will allow us to understand what we mean by the dialogic classroom in which both the introvert and extrovert from all backgrounds and abilities can flourish. We will see how such an approach helps us release ‘the 100 languages of children’. It will also make connections to a well being curriculum built on character strengths as well as looking at how archetypes can give us a greater understanding of ourselves.
- We will also explore how a cognitive, experiential approach might be possible in a socially distanced environment
This course is also available for schools to host online during 2020-21
