THE POWER OF THEATER - To prevent and fight bullying and drop out phenomena

Rating: 0/5

The role of drama in education in counteracting bullying in schools and preventing drop out phenomena is consolidated and well known. Nothing new also for schools which are already including theater as a method to enrich and empower basic and transversal competences (communication skills, body language, interpretation, feelings expression, reading and writing, socialisation, open-mindfulness) including social skills and peacekeeping. Theater is used in many spheres of our social and cultural life even it still seems that is not for all.
It became famous in the last years the union of "Theater, Non Formal Education and the Council of Europe campaign "No Hate speech" which is the topic of many youth initiative for inclusion and to fight discrimination and racism (https://www.coe.int/en/web/no-hate-campaign) .

Bullying is a form of violent behaviour that has a markedly negative effect on many aspects of the daily lives of thousands of children. Nowadays the situation is even worst. According to the research team which recently run a JUSTICE project: "Bullying is an oppressive force that impacts on the lives of many young people and adults, be that through the devastating psychological and physical consequences experienced by a victim, as a bystander or by acting as a bully themselves. With the ever growing development of online technologies, young people face a 24 hour intrusion from strangers and unwelcome, unavoidable communications. This dark online world can easily be hidden from trusted friends or adults, and without a lease for their emotions, it may lead to feeling of entrapment, or worse, damaging coping strategies including self-harm and suicide" (EU BULLY project (JUST/2013/DAP/AG/5364). "Drop-out" or "Early school leaving" are the same "not new anymore" key words part of school programs related to an endless fights in which not just teachers and students are involved and protagonists but also the whole local and world wide society.

This training is simple and useful. Not based on technologies as usual but on theater techniques which teachers can learn and adapt as group and use in short moments before the class, in indoor or outdoor specific activities or in planned moments crossing the school program with many types of possible developments. This course doesn't teach to teachers to be actors and actress but to be more European educators, "out of their comfort zone" (not behind a desk or in front of a board) and guide their students in going the same "out of their confort zone", express themselves on some personal or "universal", act and re-act, unite and fight together against bullying and drop out but also on other specific or main topics important for the group.

​Expected results/learning outcomes:
- better trained teachers and support staff to address bullying in all its forms
- better trained staff in community environments to support young people and their parents,carers, guardians and wider family and friends networks to address bullying
- greater confidence in using drama techniques at school in and outside of the classroom to create safe places to discuss bullying and other contentious issues
- more understanding that the “classroom” can be different to the traditional concept of a classroom located within a physical building of a school and can encompass a theatre environment to offer informal learning opportunities
- offering greater flexibility for teachers to use a more diverse range of learning styles and content by using drama in education techniques and apps developed for mobile
technologies
- improving the content of anti-bullying programmes on offer in schools at all levels within the compulsory education sector by adopting a whole school approach to cascading learning across the whole school curriculum improved knowledge of the frequency of cyber bullying taking place
- reducing the disparity in knowledge, skills and understanding between countries in the
partnership in regard to bullying and its impact.
