Drama as a Means of Communication
PROJECT: Mobility of Pupils
TARGET GROUP: Primary School Students
Everyone is aware of the significant influence of drama in primary education. Children enjoy being active and interacting with others. We ask them to do precisely this in drama. They are urged to move about, chat, and interact with one another rather than just sitting still and listening. Drama offers innovative and multisensory learning, which is frequently more appealing to students who struggle with reading and writing. The main benefit of drama exercises is that they are enjoyable, which makes learning remember.
Why should drama be given importance in primary education?
