Explore various ways in which drama can inform English language teaching in this experiential workshop. The session begins with community builders and their role in reducing affect. This orientation is followed by activities for working on pronunciation, including prosody exercises to help deliver implicit messages. Participants then “move” on to drama-based kinesthetic grammar practice and a discussion of embodied learning. Next attendees engage with sketches and character driven scenes to explore the hidden language of pragmatics. Playing the role of students, they will apply this awareness of social signaling to improvisation games and roleplays. Finally, participants will discuss possibilities for staging and even writing short plays with their students.
