Free event for teachers based in Medway and Sheppey
In November, Theatre31 will be running a Teachers’ CPD (Continued Professional Development) evening. This special invite-only event goes hand in hand our Artsmark Resource Pack and has been put together by our team of professional facilitators and theatre makers at Icon Theatre, after discussions with local teachers about what they would find useful.
It might only be two and half hours, but we plan to pack a lot in!
We’ll be imparting some pearls of wisdom about getting young people into drama, sharing tips of the trade for building confidence with teaching the subject, as well as talking about what we can all do to expand good practice.
Don’t worry, you’ll be very much part of the conversation and this is going to be a practical session led by the Icon team. You’ll go away armed with practical tools you can use in the classroom and beyond.
The event will include:
- Approaches to planning and structuring drama workshops (including how you can use drama cross curriculum)
- Exploration of ‘youth led’ method and how you can authentically put young people first
- Games and exercises, including approaches to devising
- Guest Artist from Theatre31’s own creative network, introducing their methodology, tips and advise.
The event will speak to the power of embedding drama and the arts in a school’s community. From improved communication skills to greater confidence, when we give young people access to the arts we see all areas of their learning affected in positive ways.
