Process Drama: It's All In the Process

Mon, 2014-01-13 15:56 -- root

Come explore Process Drama, a fun, flexible, standards-aligned, and student-empowering strategy for using drama in the classroom and across the curriculum.  Process Drama begins with a story or text, but views and develops it through a variety of lenses and processes that involve imagining possibilities beyond what is already given.  Process Drama fits perfectly with Common Core emphases on close reading, attention to details, and, especially, awareness of multiple points-of-view.  If you have ever enjoyed seeing a character put on trial, imagined what happens after ‘The End’, or conceived the parallel story of a character only barely mentioned in the text, then you will appreciate the amazing potential of Process Drama for deepening engagement, comprehension, creativity, and collaboration, and bringing Critical Literacy into the classroom.  In this workshop, we’ll delve into the philosophy behind process drama, explore specific techniques, experience sample lessons, and begin to apply the learning to original lessons in our own curricula.
