A workshop for KS2 teachers that explores the nature of learning through drama across the curriculum, but with a particular focus on history; in this instance, the Victorian workhouse.  The session will enable teachers to actively explore, in the supportive environment of the whole group, a variety of drama strategies that are designed to foster an emotional engagement with historical figures and their plight. 

Dani Compton is a Senior Lecturer in Primary Drama and English at Oxford Brookes University.  Formerly a primary teacher and SENCo, Dani’s main areas of interest lie in teaching and researching drama in education and in children’s literature. Dani is aware that many teachers do not naturally feel comfortable with using drama in the classroom and the session is structured so as to ensure a relaxed and ‘safe’ approach is taken.  Indeed she is clear that drama doesn’t work if participants do not feel at ease. Dani recently contributed an article on the relationship between history and drama to the Primary History Journal (Spring 2008).
