Relationships drama workshop
➢ activities including classroom dynamics, skills, relaxing, concentration and trust ➢ the aim of the drama play here is to evolve creativity, to develop the personality If we do not consider each other we will not be able to cooperate. When, why and how does this happen? If we would like to resolve this problem then what do we do about it as a member of a community?
Teresa – complex drama workshop about aggression
What happens in those who are accidentally there as an innocent third person? ➢ physical and emotional abuse towards each other in the classroom ➢ causes crisis situations within a group of children based on fear and aggression ➢ the roles offer a framework ➢ what happens inside us before this happens?
➢ help in creating new schemes in their culture of behavior that avoid risks ➢ offers an alternative that avoids and rejects the world of drugs and aggression ➢ the role of arts that shape personalities and communities ➢ involves 900 young people
What are the possibilities of a drama teacher in prevention? ➢ we should not manage our conflicts ➢ be able to understand them ➢ think about the same situation in a different way ➢ use ’learning through actions’ ➢ drama teacher uses a role, acts as an active character of scenes
The success of drama programmes: ➢ using pedagogical methods ➢ realized according to special educational needs Drama can be an effective and powerful tool if it is used to ask questions about the quality of relationships at the school.
“Drama is the best way ‘cause you just feel you can be more yourself”
A TIE-project in the classroom Basic hypothesis: Drama and theatre applied in the educational process helps teenagers in the value orientation and value acquisition.
THE RESEARCH IS FOCUSED BY FOLLOWING QUESTIONS 1. What does value acquisition for teenagers? 2. What does value orientation mean for teachers of teenagers? 3. Is there value crisis in the value systems of Hungarian teenagers today? 4. How does one particular theater in education model project influence the value orientation attitudes of teenagers? 5. Due to the affect of the drama project will the pre-observed advantage or disadvantage between the two groups remain or will it disappear by the end of the action research?
Target Groups of the action research (2007/2009) Three secondary school classes of the same age group. Different social backgrounds (with low and high SES) different cognitive competences different socialization from two different cities (Budapest and Vác).
Methods of the Research Qualitative methodological procedures: structured, semi-structured, unstructured interviews interviews within a focus group comparative and trend examinations document analysis quantitative and qualitative analysis (CA) recorded audio-visual material (video recording of the workshops)
