Using Drama for Talk and Writing

Friday, November 18, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm

This mainly practical course, led by Patrice Baldwin, explains how Drama can be used to provide stimulating contexts, relevant content and compelling reasons for children to write (both individually and collaboratively).  Participants will learn how drama strategies can be used and framed with intent, to enable different types of thinking, inter-thinking and talk, at various stages of the writing process.

Some possible roles for teachers will also be actively explored, e.g. the ‘teacher in role’ as guide, co-writer, editor, client, reader, etc. within drama contexts.

Participants will take part in both KS1 and KS2 drama lessons, which have been planned to focus on ‘thought, talk and writing’.  Embodied ways of story-mapping and story-telling in Drama, will also be suggested.

Objectives:

  • To increase teachers’ knowledge, skills and understanding, of the ways in which drama can be used to improve children’s talk, thinking, inter-thinking and writing.
  • To give teachers the motivation and confidence, to try using drama strategies and whole class drama, (including working in role themselves, at times).

Participants will learn:

  • Some new drama strategies.
  • What various drama strategies offer in terms of thinking, inter-thinking and writing
  • Some possible roles and functions of the teacher, during a ‘Drama for Thought, Talk and Writing’ lesson
  • Various ways of using story-mapping and story-telling, to intentionally support thought, talk and writing
