What knowledge / skills beyond the exam specification do you want students to acquire in your subject?
In Drama we want students to develop their collaboration, confidence, resilience and creativity. We want them 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
"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.
