Questioning in Drama

Thursday 16th May, 6.30-8.30pm: Venue: Goldsmiths.

This is a practical workshop led by Amanda Kipling, PGCE Drama Course Leader at Goldsmiths, exploring alternatives to the mainstream targeted questioning in the classroom. It explores how theatre and drama engage questioning by their very nature, how drama provides rich material for deep questioning through the art form and the art of hidden questioning.

This course will enable you to
– refresh your questioning and answering techniques;
– deepen dramatic engagement through enquiry;
– refine transitions between activities and so streamline planning.

More info and booking at Questioning.

Why Teach GCSE Drama?

Wednesday 22nd May, 6.30-8.30pm: Venue: Goldsmiths.

At a time when your results are slipping because of government involvement in the curriculum, written exams and a cohort of SEND and EAL pupils, why teach GCSE Drama?

It’s time to think about moving to Btec where you are back in control of your curriculum: no exams, no set texts, three units based on your strengths with 100% coursework. Course led by Catherine Connor, PGCE Drama Course Leader at UEL. More info and booking at Why GCSE?

Care & Good Use of Your Voice

Thursday 30th May, 6.30-8.30pm: Venue: Goldsmiths.

Are you looking after your voice? Do you really know how to?

Teachers like actors are professional voice users but unlike actors do not always get any kind of training to help them care for their voice

This is a practical workshop led by Amanda Kipling, PGCE Drama Course Leader at Goldsmiths, which traces the theory and practice of voice. From breathing through to articulation you will learn how your voice works, how it can be damaged, how to look out for danger signs and how to gain the most out of your voice while putting the least effort into it. More info and booking at Voice Care.
