BESPOKE INSET TRAINING
We regularly deliver bespoke INSET training to teachers, either here at The Watermill (where you can also arrange to have lunch) or we can visit your school. We provide training in the following areas throughout the year:
• VOICE TRAINING FOR TEACHERS
• USING DRAMA TO TEACH SHAKESPEARE
• DRAMA IN THE CLASSROOM
A practical workshop designed to give the teachers the tools they need to use their voices continuously and effectively under difficult circumstances. Teachers learn how to use effective breath control, vary their pitch, attain balanced and resonant voices, and how to articulate clearly. We also look at vocal health and how to maintain the strength of your voice during a long and busy term.
USING DRAMA TO TEACH SHAKESPEARE
How can you get your students excited by Shakespeare, up on their feet and speaking the lines to each other with confidence and enthusiasm? Using professional rehearsal techniques we break down the acting process into manageable chunks, so that neither you nor your students are intimidated. And in the process, we’ll uncover ways of teaching the technical wizardry and performing close language analysis so that everyone can understand. Before you know it, you’ll have a roomful of Romeos professing their undying love to imaginary balconies.
