CREATIVE DRAMA LESSONS (PRIVATE)
Creative drama is valuable for teaching both skills and concepts to young children. Children play naturally, and much of their learning in the early stages of life comes from this active vicarious experience.
Reasons for Using Creative Drama
- Children are rewarded for good and original ideas. A positive atmosphere is maintained, free from destructive criticism. Students gain confidence in themselves and their ideas.
- Social awareness is increased. By working with others and pretending to "be" others, a child can learn to understand himself and others and gain awareness of interactions between people and the effects of his actions upon others.
- Children often work in groups toward a common goal. This provides an opportunity for children to learn cooperation as well as leadership, followership, and discussion skills.
- Sense awareness is emphasized as children learn to relax and listen, look, feel and smell their environment. This can lead to an enhanced aesthetic appreciation of life.
- Creative drama helps develop motor skills and coordination.
- Concepts in many subjects can be demonstrated. For example, a group of children can create a "machine" with interrelated parts.
In business, in school, and in public life, we are often called upon to “make a few comments.” Often, people tasked with such speeches become flummoxed. They might not know what to talk about, or ramble without making a point, or simply be confusing to listen to. This course is designed to help you shine where others falter.
If you’re a beginner, this course will help you quickly master the fundamentals of speaking. If you’re a seasoned speaker, this course will help you better understand public speaking and push you to the next level.
