Drama in (of) the Curriculum for Excellence!

Discussion in 'Scotland - curriculum' started by DoraDrama, Jul 9, 2011.

  1. Hi there! I am new here and I am trying to understand how things in Primary Education work, and especially on drama. Is there a general instruction plan by the Curriculum for Excellence provided specifically for drama in primary education and its practice or is it based on each teacher?s volition and school's priorities? Is there any analytical plan for any of the subjects?

    What I am trying to say is that I am wondering if the Curriculum For Excellence and the Scottish Executive provide any guidelines and/or supporting materials for teachers in order to facilitate and assure its implementation and achievement of aims. Thanks!

    Have a look at Bubbles Drama.
  3. If you really want to embed drama as a tool for learning in to the curriculum then you should look at Mantle of the Expert created by Dorothy Heathcote. This will bring true magic to the classroom but allow pupils to explore, develop and learn in a co constructive manner. The website is currently being updated so that you can get schemes of work however there are many training opportunities in this pedagogy if you are really looking to develop and move your own practice forward.
