Arts Education. Drama in Context
Series: Arts Education
This resource supports the Grade 4 focus "Saskatchewan Voices."
This video was produced to facilitate teachers' understanding of the approach to the learning and teaching of drama recommended in the Drama strand of Saskatchewan Arts Education curriculum. The video shows excerpts of a drama in which a multi-graded class, students in grades 1 to 5 and their teacher, work together. It focuses on the range of ways that the teacher functions throughout the drama, highlights the students' work and attempts to capture the spirit of their drama. It also includes interview segments in which the teacher provides direct links between the drama unfolding on the video and the processes and strategies described in the curriculum.
