How to Use Theatre in the Classroom?
Interactive Workshop for Teachers
– can be booked all through the year –
We are thrilled to introduce STET Education’s new workshop for teachers!
During this English language drama workshop you will learn valuable drama techniques to incorporate into your classes. This workshop is aimed to give you ready-to-use tools to make your classes more inclusive, fun and interactive. It is also great for team-building and to have a lot of fun together.
During the workshop you will experience for yourselves what it means to perform in pairs, as a group and on your own. You will go through all the exercises and will be given the opportunity to play and interact with each other. The workshop is practical, useful and aims to achieve a feeling of confidence. You will learn to inspire, interact and explain the exercises.
The workshop will focus on:
- Physical exercises, using the body and face to express different emotions and learning to be present.
- Energising exercises like mirroring each other. Playing different roles and exploring the use of your imagination.
- Short dialogues and role play, discovering the power of language, timing and interaction.
- Voice exercises. Loud, soft, intonation, articulation and bringing your message across in a playful and interesting way.
“I really enjoyed the workshop and I found it useful. I loved the activities, but even more so, the personal touch she brought in, such as giving advice to everyone individually. The workshop will definitely be in my CV.”
– Olga from the Krimpenerwaard College, 2023

“The diversity of my work continues to fascinate and challenge me. What I enjoy and love about it, is that it incorporates all facets of theatre practice. It has enabled me to work with people from all over the globe and help them tap into their creative potential, thus finding ways to release the potential performer in us all.“
