Teaching Secondary School Science through Drama
Darlington, Helen
School Science Review, v91 n337 p109-113 Jun 2010
There is substantial evidence that teaching science through creative methods increases pupils' motivation and their enjoyment of science. This has been found to be particularly true for those pupils who are not always self-motivated and who find learning easier when less formal techniques are used. Drama is an excellent method of bringing creativity into the classroom. The activities mentioned here, ranging from large ongoing projects to smaller five-minute mimes, can easily be adapted for the delivery of a variety of science topics to a wide range of pupils.
