Behaviour management techniques for active, practical lessons Liberated from behind desks and encouraged to express emotion, the drama class offers more freedom to pupils. What is the impact on behaviour? How can this best be managed?
Simon Druker, a drama teacher at Bonus Pastor Catholic College in south east London, explains his approach to behaviour management in a drama class.
Simon operates a clear lesson structure, culminating each time in a performance. He talks about the importance of choosing the right material and building relationships with students over time. We see this in action in a lesson where the students work on the difficult and sensitive subject of child soldiers in Uganda.
