"MOVEMENT can go deeper than words.“
Jaques Lecoq

WHAT IS DRAMA?
  - Drama has the potential, as a diverse medium, to enhance cognitive, affective and motor development.
  - Drama is a unique tool to explore and express human feeling.
  - By actually taking on roles, the student can come to 'feel' what it is like to be in a situation. This alternate perspective encourages students to question previous assumptions and judgements
  - Imitation is a natural and spontaneous 'stage' of early child development whereby a child is beginning to investigate the world by imitating it.
  - Piaget notes that "To express things with gestures, the child must have a mental image of what it is he or she is acting out. Acting out in turn strengthens the mental image", inferring that this reciprocal process is a natural way of learning.
  - Drama creates opportunity for children to interact in a productive & purposeful way, with other class members. Vygotsky (Mind and So ciety,1978),

What are the dramatization activities?
  - Doing rhytmic repetitions.
  - taking on roles to make the student come to 'feel' what it is like to be in a situation.
  - imitating & repeating orally/ bodily the teacher or the character in their course book.

Drama assists in the development of :

  - the use of imagination
  - powers of creative self expression
  - decision making and problem solving skills
  - understanding of self and the world
  - self confidence, asense of worth and respect and consideration for others.
  - A high degree of thinking, feeling and moving
  - subsequently of skills for all other learning within and outside of schools (transfer of learning).
