How drama can help
Facilitating dramatic activities in the classroom enables teachers to more easily embrace Cultural Responsiveness. Dramatic activities are a "way in" to your students' points-of-view and voices. They are specifically formulated to help create empathy among students and promote risk-taking and perseverance.
Culturally Responsive dramatic lesson plans are ideal for teachers who want to embrace all traditions--more than simply celebrating holidays and cultural foods.
Drama Education can help establish rituals and routines to produce a space where students contribute authentically to all aspects of learning and creating.
