Using Drama as a Bible Teaching Method - Teacher Training Resources 
 


 
using drama in the classroom

The way teachers use drama in the classroom should not only be governed by their objectives but also by factors such as the size and age of their class and available time. Possible formats include:

  • acting it out impromptu or rehearsed (i.e., charades, mime, mock trial, pantomime, play, role play, skit, story playing)
  • acting it out through the use of representative characters (i.e., puppets)
  • reading it like a radio drama (i.e., dramatic reading, choral reading, audio-taping)
  • reporting it as one who was there (i.e., interview, monologue)
  • watching it be performed live or recorded (i.e., staged, videotaped)
  • writing and producing it by students themselves
