Kitakyushu JALT:

Engaging Learners in Their Own Learning with a Drama Approach

Date: Saturday, June 25th, 2005 Time: 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Speaker: Steve Brown

Drama in the language classroom is often thought of as just a series of 'techniques' or 'fun activities' aimed to get students actively using the language. Either that, or 'putting on a play'. But at its most rewarding, it is an approach to learning which seeks to actively engage learners in the learning process and encourages them to work together as a group, sharing the responsibility for their own learning. In this presentation, Steve Brown suggests how drama might be used in the classroom as a wider-ranging approach. He'll link his presentation to recent developments and practices in the area of learner autonomy. Participants should expect to be actively engaged and have fun! The presentation will be followed by an Open Microphone session, with a chance to ask questions, suggest ideas and share concerns, complaints and opinions with JALT's current National President.
