Drama Workshops for Teachers

Shakespeare Drama Workshops in Munich


Drama and role-play in the EFL Classroom

The 4-hour workshops are designed for teachers who would like to gain deeper insight into dramatic approaches to engage students in affective and aesthetic learning in the EFL classroom.

Drama studies are communicative, co-operative, challenge own’s perceptions and further critical cultural awareness. Benefits for implementing an active approach to teaching drama are numerous: it helps to build self-confidence, furthers imagination and empathy, and, most of all – it is fun!

Learners are thus empowered and will change from readers, to actors, to critics.

We will look at various active approaches to teaching drama, in particular to teaching Shakespeare’s plays as well as several theatre games, image work, and role work, all of which can be easily implemented into your classroom.

The workshops will elaborate on various techniques based on drama pedagogy that support different learner types and offer you guidelines on how to keep your students actively involved in the learning process.
