- Building Confidence and Resilience
- Inspiring Creativity
- Developing Collaborative Skills
In Drama we want students to develop their confidence, resilience and creativity based on the knowledge acquired in class and to build their collaboration skills within the group to create an effective group ensemble that allows their skills to be developed continuously.
"Reflection and action upon the world in order to transform it" Paulo Freire.
A fundamental pedagogy of working practically in Drama is the constant reflective and creative dialogue. Verbal feedback and actions are world class basics followed by a practical response through dedicated improvement and reflection time. Asking questions invigorates thinking and encourages students to communicate and express ideas so that students are able to see the out workings of their decision making, they are able to think, to question and make connections
We want students to be able to improve through reflective behaviour to become -
- Self-aware and self-critical
- Honest about themselves and skill level
- Open to criticism and feedback – seeks it
- Objective in weighing up evidence
- Open and prepared to try different options
- Curious and motivated to improve
Culture and Ethos
Commitment - Engage, learn, develop and collaborate
Opportunity – Enrich, grow in confidence, lead
Respect – Self and others
Excellence – Attitudes, behaviour, outcomes
