Pioneering the Drama curriculum: Study Drama to learn about life
The two nominees, Mr. TSIN, the team leader, and Ms. WONG, the team member, are pioneers in drama education in schools. The team implements a school-based Drama programme in the formal curriculum. Students can choose Drama as an elective subject on a yearly basis. The Drama programme they designed combines principles in Drama in Education, Drama Education, Theatre in Education and Drama Performance, and aptly allocates activities as Theatre Games, Script Studies, Drama Appreciation and Drama Creation to let students experience the dramatic process first-hand to invoke students’ understanding of themselves, others and the surroundings, and to enhance their critical thinking, thereby building up students' positive values in life and their concern for the country and communities for whole-person development. Starting from this year, Drama-cum-English cross-subject learning has also been introduced.

 

   After being exposed to drama, many students built up interests in it.

 

The observation of a Secondary 5 drama lesson demonstrated students’ study on drama yielded favourable results. Under the guidance of both teachers, students, in an hour's time, were able to instantly create and rehearse short episodes that employed "time and space elements" to illustrate their enquiry of the diverse views on "school bullying”. The presentation of each group followed by class discussion showed that students not only could acquire the techniques, content and forms in drama, but also could build up critical thinking on social issues through drama activities.
 

 

Apart from the formal curriculum, a Drama Society has also been established to encourage students participation in drama activities outside class sessions. Over the years, students’ drama productions and performances have won many prizes and have received highly favourable comments from the school sector.
 

In addition, Mr. TSIN and Ms. WONG have been active drama teacher trainers for secondary and primary school teachers. They have also undertaken research projects on Drama education. Currently, they further collaborate with the Curriculum Development Institute from 2005 to 2007 in the Drama Education New Senior Secondary Seed Project.
