Without a doubt, our greatest source for Professional Development is hearing what teachers around the province are doing with their students to encourage their artistic growth in dance and drama. Our newest blog, The Students’ Corner aims to share effective activities and lessons, but this time, from the point of view of our students. CODE members are doing incredible things all over the province, and here is your chance to find out your students’ favourite activities and units. Ask your students to write a short piece on what their favourite activity/unit was and how it worked. Let them know that teachers all over Ontario could read their submission so they should be specific in their description of the exercise. Also, once they have explained how the activity works, have them write how it benefited them as performers and people. Did it help them really break down their wall? Did it allow them to see the world from a brand new perspective? Maybe it helped them understand a concept they were having trouble grasping. We are looking for submissions from teachers and their students all over Ontario. For the younger students involved in drama and dance, perhaps they could write why they enjoyed the exercise and their teachers could break down how the exercise works. Feel free to submit your responses to email@example.com. Check out the CODE site often for new drama and dance exercises – brought to you by the students. Our first submission comes from a Grade 11 Drama student at Meadowvale Secondary School, in Mississauga.
