In this workshop we will work with Drama Techniques and literature in the English Class. We will carry out performative activities in collaborative contexts that create room for children & adolescents to express themselves in English. We will introduce literary texts that can be easily performed such as stories, poems, rhymes and plays. We will explore how performative tasks with literature help students develop their own voice, artistic awareness and collaboration.
The workshop has a dialogical and interactive approach. Participants will discuss and apply concepts, work with literature, carry out performative tasks, brainstorm creative teaching ideas & develop supporting teaching materials.
