Course Description

Drama has multiple uses in education. It addresses and activates bodily-kinesthetic, visual-spatial, linguistic-verbal, musical, interpersonal, and intrapersonal learning resulting in significant increased student engagement and enjoyment. It also facilitates the development of empathy and critical thinking skills as situations are reflected upon and discussed. Moreover, practices in drama enrich the teaching and learning of English (TESOL) and other language pedagogies by facilitating the advancement of fluency, helping students to embody language meaning (through movement, mirroring and emotional catharsis), which result in the acceleration of communication skills.

In this course, participants will experience how Drama in Education practices can enhance the learning of languages or any subject. Teachers will learn dramatic activities that can be modified and integrated into lesson plans for any language, subject, level, age or cultural population. Together, we will utilize the Actor’s Toolbox (Body, Voice, Imagination, Concentration, and Cooperation) to practice and design activities based on the four components of language learning: Speaking, Listening, Reading, and Writing. Participants will be guided in how to build a safe “theatre ensemble” in the classroom to develop trust and respect for peers and the advanced collaborative skills needed for academia, the professional world, and life.

Drama in education pioneers and their methodologies such as Dorothy Heathcote’s process drama, Augusto Boal’s Theatre of the Oppressed, and Viola Spolin’s “Theater Games” will be studied and practiced with a specific focus on elementary, secondary, and adult applications.

Each day we will identify specific learning objectives, and then engage in dramatic activities, games, and improvisational exercises. Participants will be guided through collaborative group projects where everyone will learn how to write and devise scenes, monologues, short plays, and lesson plans by applying the drama methodologies practiced. The practical application and integration of drama into the language or multi-subject classroom will motivate forums for reflection, analysis, discussion, and transformation as we address each day’s focus questions and fulfill individually identified goals.

Reviews

I am very pleased to have had the opportunity to acquaint myself with a new perspective of language teaching and to enrich my methodological grounding. What impacted me most profoundly professionally and personally was the fact that I could learn about the different layers of my personality and those of the group members through the shared group experiences enhanced by the synthesis of the diverse tasks, which contributed greatly to the effectiveness of both individual and group work...Experiencing the impact of a new perspective and learning from enthusiastic and knowledgeable experts in an intercultural group environment will surely prove a life-long memory. I am grateful for the opportunity.
--Anita Gaál-Szabó ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

The course was a moving, psychological experience. We had lessons in a very friendly and funny environment, the atmosphere was professional and easy-going as well. We learned a lot and found it very useful. We felt over the moon.
--Malgorzata Gawlińska Lazar and Katarzyna Kordek ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I’m still living off the positive vibes that Marisol and José put in motion this past summer. Every time I get a little or a lot frustrated at school, I look back to our week of team building and I feel ‘serene’ and confident. And, I try to pass that along to the children: Happiness, confidence, and serenity.
