MED Theatre’s rich programme of workshops are popular in schools all across Devon. We also provide teacher training opportunities in drama. For more information see below.
MED Theatre currently runs a workshop in teacher training for primary school teachers. This can either be brought to your school, or, if we add you to our mailing list, we can notify you when a session is next in your area.
How to use drama in the classroom: Teachers are led through a wide variety of drama exercises and techniques that can be used directly in the classroom. Teachers not only have the chance to be a ‘student’ for the sessions but are also invited to share their own ideas for variations on these techniques. This enriches the process by providing an open forum and techniques become versatile to a variety of subjects. Handouts are provided to support the session. One teacher commented “It is so refreshing to do something creative and be active.”
