Directed to teachers of any subject (Primary and Secondary) interested in using Drama in their daily plans
1. Drama strategies to support the learning process
2. Simple class activities that will stimulate imagination and creativity
3. As a warm up to introduce a new topic/ activity
4. To help students relax and focus when concentration is lost
Brian Way stresses “A few minutes of active Drama can do much for tired, strained and possibly bored minds”

A thirty- or forty-minute lesson is an important factor in academic study yet, in Drama, a five-minute activity can be as important as the longer one. Sometimes its place on the timetable is governed by factors of human needs and /or of academic necessity.
Drama is concerned with people and it mustn’t be seen as interfering with an intense curriculum; it is part of education and it aids other studies and achievements. Our challenge is to use this tool with confidence. We will discover that students will continue to pass tests and exams even if time is given to drama.
