National Drama's Regional SEND Workshop - NATIONAL DRAMA

National Drama’s Regional SEND Workshop

Join us for a workshop on drama in specialist education, happening on October 4th . All teachers and practitioners welcome.


with Gill Brigg and Morgan Meredith

This one-day workshop will cover a range of approaches to Drama with SEND pupils. Gill will focus on emotional engagement in stories and teaching in role. Meredith will explore the different Drama approaches used within the five bespoke learning pathways offered at Elms Bank.

There will be a range of activities throughout the day including workshops, Q and A, along with some theoretical underpinning. Teachers will be given a set of adaptable lesson plans to take away and use in school.

It is hoped that there will be contributions from the students at Elms Bank.

This event is relevant to all teachers working in specialist SEND settings, regardless of previous Drama experience, and across all phases, including post-16.

Dr Gill Brigg and Morgan Meredith will co-lead the day.
