Techniques for teachers

“You have to follow the crowd, you don’t want to be the one left out”


The following sections offer a number of drama and language based activities for developing skills in the classroom. They do not require specialist skills, but descriptions of the basic techniques are included for those who have not used them before. If class control is an anxiety for teachers inexperienced in drama, plan your lesson well in advance and ideally run the session with the support of another colleague or a classroom assistant.
