Drama and Literacy Workshop Oct 4th

Dear Colleagues and friends of ADEI,

Please find attached notice of a very special workshop on Drama and Literacy which ADEI is presenting in early October to be delivered by Pamela Bowell, one of the most highly respected practitioners and writers in the field. Pamela will work with us on using drama in unexpected, innovative ways to build interest, motivation and engagement with speaking, reading and writing at their own level in young people.

Important NoteWhile the flier indicates a focus on the upper Primary age-range, teachers of older students will still be able to learn the drama approaches and strategies that work with young people and apply them to their older students.  Pamela will be happy to answer any questions on this also.

We would be most grateful if you could please display the poster and/or pass the information to anyone and everyone you think would be interested.

With very best regards and thanks,

Mary Howard

Chairperson, ADEI
