Social and Cultural Learning Through Drama
Teaching for progression in the child-centred classroom
The National Executive Committee of NATD asked:
- How do we attend to the individual progress of a child and still cater for the needs of the class as a whole?
- What is the place for dramatic learning in their lives at school?
- What knowledge, skills and understanding do we as teachers need to sharpen for our learners to cope with the twenty-first century.
These questions were addressed through:
Keynotes: provided by Professor Tim Brighouse, Mike Fleming, Maggie Hulson and Guy Williams.
Workshops: led by Luke Abbott, Pavla Beier and Brian Woolland.
International Forum: led by Luke Abbott and Wasim Kurdi.
Performance: the students of Hazelwick School, Crawley, UK performed Spark. This was a piece devised by the students with Gemma Grubb and Justine Simon from a scheme of work based on the myth of Prometheus written by Maggie Hulson. It was first performed in August 2013 in Mostar, Bosnia.
