In this Course, learners are encouraged to exercise imagination and to express themselves in different ways. They will develop important skills, attitudes and attributes of the four capacities, including creativity, adaptability, enthusiasm, a willingness to learn and confidence. Learning through drama helps learners to appreciate cultural values, identities and ideas.
The Course uses an integrated approach to learning which develops practical skills as well as knowledge of drama. As learners develop their creating skills, they will also learn how to use drama skills. They will experiment with presenting through portrayal of character and by using production skills.
Through creating and presenting drama, reflection skills will also be developed as learners reflect on their own skills and progress, and that of other learners. Learners will also consider the cultural values, identities and ideas which influence drama.
