Inspired Drama Teaching is packed full of practical ideas to inspire your students and colleagues. This book offers tips and ideas on everything a teacher of secondary drama needs to cover, including:
• Explorative strategies, such as role play and forum-theatre
• Activities for making use of stimuli, such as scripts and music
• Ideas for incorporating the elements of drama, such as rhythm and characterisation
• Approaching drama as a medium, through the use of mime and make-up.
This book includes a chapter on getting the students to work collaboratively, and one on making use of ICT within drama on the companion website. There is also a chapter dedicated to embodying drama and dramatic techniques across the curriculum, so you can get your colleagues excited about drama as well. There's a handy exam specification matrix online too.
Inspired Drama Teaching isn't only for teachers just beginning their careers on the school stage; even experienced drama and English teachers will find plenty of new ideas and activities.
