ABOUT THE COURSE

This course will explain how teachers can use drama to enable a class to actively engage with narrative poetry, in a meaningful and memorable way. A range of drama strategies will be used, that can enable children to enter the fiction in role and to interactively explore the language, imagery, verses, characters, settings, key moments and themes contained within the poem. Ways in which narrative poems can be extended through drama, will also be suggested.

Teachers will be guided ‘step by step’, through at least one drama unit based on a narrative poem (or two units, if there is sufficient session time available), e.g. The Pied Piper of Hamelin, The Lady of Shallot, The Listeners, What Has Happened to Lulu?

Booking details to be announced.
