SHOW YOUR FEELINGS WITH DRAMA
SHOW YOUR FEELINGS WITH DRAMA
PROJECT: Mobility of Pupils
TARGET GROUP: Primary/Secondary/Upper-secondary School Students
Everyone is aware of the significant influence of drama in primary education. Students enjoy being active and interacting with others. We ask them to do precisely this in drama. They are urged to move about, chat, and interact with one another rather than just sitting still and listening. Drama offers innovative and multisensory learning, which is frequently more appealing to students who struggle with reading and writing. The main benefit of drama exercises is that they are enjoyable, which makes learning remember.
Why should drama be given importance in education?
• Encourages effective communication
• Stimulates creative thinking
• Giving a chance to express themselves
At the end of the program, the students will be able to;
- explore, discuss and cope with challenging situations while expressing their feelings in a safe setting
- develop critical thinking and problem-solving abilities
- take responsible roles and make choices
- participate in and guide their own learning
- have the social skills needed to interact openly, honestly and playfully with others
- develop empathy with, and understanding of, other people and the confidence needed to assume a role or character
learn to co-operate with others, out of role, when problems are presented
Objectives of the Course:
- Becoming drama-literate
- Understanding the structures and modes of drama
- Gaining a knowledge of drama through exploration of themes drawn from life
- Evaluating drama texts, either written or performed

Mentoring & Monitoring:
Before the mobility:
- Anatolia Education arranges all the practicalities for both host school and sending school,
revise the program with both parties and be sure everything will be well arranged in advance.
During the mobility:
- A professional trainer / mentor accompanies the group, mentor them about the content of the program and also monitor the progress of the pupils. The trainer/mentor prepares a group report and also personal report for each of the participants at the end of the activity. The reports are sent to both sending and hosting schools to evaluate the success of the program.
- A short evaluation form is applied at the end of the program to monitor the success of the activity.
- Certificate of Participation and Europass mobility Document are prepared to validate the mobility
After the mobility:
- Anatolia Education keeps the contact with both parties after the mobility and assist them whenever they are in need to put what they have gained into practice at schools or disseminate the activity at various platforms.
