Drama as a Teaching Tool – Primary
2 hours
Suitable for primary teachers

A 2-hour course for primary teachers, this workshop shares Monkey Baa’s practical strategies for using drama as pedagogy across the primary curriculum. Teach maths using movement, geography through tableaux and literacy through speaking aloud: join us for a fun and action-packed session.

PLAY! A toolkit for teachers
2 hours

Suitable for Early Childhood through to Stage 6 HSC teachers

Early childhood, primary and secondary teachers – join us for 2 hours that will reinvigorate your repertoire of activities, starters, warm ups and active learning strategies for students of all ages. This workshop is perfect for drama teachers seeking new ideas, and teachers of other subjects looking to expand their methodology to include drama.

Team Building through Drama
3 hours
Suitable for Early Childhood through to Stage 6 HSC teachers

This workshop explores the best ways to use drama to improve social coherence – amongst students and staff. We can tailor the session to be a team building experience for the teachers participating, or for teachers to apply to students. This is particularly recommended for HSC Drama teachers, as a methodology for Group Projects, but Monkey Baa has successfully delivered this course for teachers from Early Childhood all the way through to Year 12.
