How Can Drama Illuminate Reading?
This workshop, led by Cecily O'Neill, the world renowned Drama practitioner and theoretician, will explore the ways in which Drama can illuminate the process of reading at Primary level.
In the light of forthcoming Government initiatives on the teaching of reading in Primary schools this workshop will illustrate in a practical way how you can use drama to contextualise and personalise the process of reading for your children, to assist them to feel positive about their reading experiences, and inspire them to become enquirers into learning through reading.
It will also equip you with many useful drama strategies for use in your teaching generally.
