All of the techniques we used in this class can be connected in some way, and many of them can be used as an extension, to go deeper in combination with another technique in order to allow students to grow in areas of improving drama skills, improving communication, learning about other curriculum areas, and learning more about themselves.
This blog displays many of the connection and integrations I have seen between drama techniques and other curriculum areas. I hope you have a chance to try some of these in your classroom, or really in any group to create a culture of inclusion, appreciation for each other, a greater understanding of one another, and ultimately an increase in confidence!
Below is a list with some other strategies (also click HERE or HERE for more drama strategies) Remember, all of these can be used in any combination to teach or provide a powerful learning experience with any group of people!
Have fun with drama, and never limit yourself or your students to fear or a lack of confidence....just try something new and step out of your comfort zone like I did. You never know what you might find out!
