Drama Tools & Adaptations

Our Using Drama for Learning specialists share unique adaptations of the drama tools teachers have come up with over the course of the program.


Schools improve through drama

In this school-wide initiative, drama-in-education specialists Jonathan Neelands and Rachel Dickenson took Shelton Primary School through a complete transformation at all levels, management, academic leadership,  teachers, parents and learners.

“The drama initiative has involved staff in openly taking risks together and the collegial approach has increased respect among teachers, school leaders and parents.

“Because parents have discussed drama with their children and been involved in workshops, they feel involved in the aims and objectives of the programme.”

“Increased confidence and skill in using questioning and learning through discovery allows teachers to give greater responsibility to pupils for the direction of their learning.”
