National Drama Drama

Community cohesion and the prevention of violent extremism
A resource for teachers to use in the classroom

Resource title
Once they get started
Source: See attached Word document Drama scheme and strategies
This cross-curricular drama scheme uses a poem as its starting point and offers opportunities to explore issues of exclusion, prejudice, victimisation and group hatred through a range of drama strategies. The scheme makes use of:
  • movement
  • shape
  • sound
  • language
  • role
as pupils examine the key issues from within an imagined narrative.

This resource encourages groups and individuals to discuss key issues, and evaluate alternative responses. Writing -in-role and drawing-in-role strategies give learners additional opportunities to engage with both victims and perpetrators of violence.

Other strategies include:
  • Soundscapes
  • Language Collage
  • Human keyboard
  • Symbolisation exercises
The scheme includes a series of practical steps and provides detailed guidance for teachers on how each strategy can be applied. Although the scheme is based around process drama strategies the work also includes theatre, dance, visual art, literacy and PSHE education.
