EDDR600 Drama Curriculum Studies: Advanced Professional Practice
This unit is designed to provide primary teachers with the opportunity to explore theory, research and pedagogy associated with drama in education and will involve students learning about and through drama. The unit focuses on students expressing and communicating understandings about human experiences and issues through the enactment of real and imagined events. Through the exploration and analysis of contemporary theoretical and pedagogical frameworks of educational drama, students will gain further understanding of how drama can be applied effectively throughout the primary curriculum. This will involve an exploration of a range of learner literacies including aesthetic, oral and kinaesthetic. Students will prepare meaningful drama units for the primary classroom and explore how educational drama can be successfully managed.
