  • Drama encourages a cooperative approach to exploring the world through enactment. The collaborative nature of this artform engages students in a creative process of sharing, developing and expressing emotions and ideas.

  • Outcome 4.1.2: A student improvises and playbuilds through group-devised processes.

  • Outcome 5.1.2: A student contributes, selects, develops and structures ideas in improvisation and playbuilding.

Such a positioning reflects the pedagogical belief in the importance of young people’s art making in drama and the primacy of experiential, enactive learning.  (Hatton and Lovesy, 2008).
