This course focuses on the 3-tier professional development of the fundamentals in speech development and creative drama. As a 3 Module programme, it offers innovative ideas as to how Speech & Drama are conducted in a fun and more effective way. Refreshing activities, games, problem-solving exercises, and differentiated class-size activities are imparted and shared. The 1st Module is an introduction to the course on spontaneous self-expression, creative thinking skills, psychomotor skills and body awareness, confidence building, approbation techniques, and English Language and literature appreciation. All these are facilitated in a multi-sensory manner, fostering the child’s brain development and learning. The 2nd Module, Speech & Drama in Action, involves exploratory concepts of drama such as cooperation with others, developing proper articulation and confidence, critical thinking, problem solving, physical exploration, scriptwriting and directing. The 3rd and final Module, Drama in Education highlights drama stylistically and realistically. It puts teaching application into practice through pedagogical means.
