{January 4, 2010}   Using Drama in your classes

English teachers are actors by nature. We are always on stage, performing for our students, trying to find better ways for them to learn. Many of the activities we commonly use are related to drama. Think about this:

We work for an audience, with mostly imaginative activities. We make positive comments to our students, enhancing the attention of the audience. We frequently role play situations with our students so they practice newly acquired structures and vocabulary.

I came across a book called 101 Drama Games and Activities where many interesting activities are pointed out. One of the EVO sessions I will be attending this year is related to drama. I hope I get many new ideas to share with you!
