This two part workshop focuses on dramatic approaches to support young children's literacy and narrative competence. These approaches include process drama and dramatic play, with picture books and stories being re-imagined to create the stimulus for this work.
In the first part of the workshop Julie will lead participants through a process drama experience suitable for children from four years of age. Strategies and approaches will be modelled and explained. Links to play, written literacy and narrative competence will be made across this session.
In part two, participants will work with Julie to plan a similar experience based on another re-imagined story, learning how to select an appropriate text, identify a focus and sequence some of the strategies to create a cohesive and aesthetic experience for young children.
In both sessions an emphasis will be placed on the importance of tapping into children's imagination and growing their creativity by balancing adult structured activities and child-structured play.
