Green room: JOIN THE DEBATE

Teacher-in-role… some love it, some hate it  –  it’s the marmite of teaching strategies.

In our newest issue of Teaching Drama (available Monday 17 October – visit our website to get yourself a copy), the experts have had their say. Sarah Nunn and Josie Clark made their case in support of acting in the classroom, while Ali Warren and Peter Jolly felt the practice often leads to some teachers just showing off.

But what do you think? It’s time for you to have your say!

Vote below and let us know what you think …

  1. I think it can be a really effective teaching tool but I have to say that I HATE using it! I have seen other teachers use it really well though!

  2. I know what you mean, Lucy. I once attended an RSC workshop where the tutor gave a wonderful demonstration of how effective it can be, but I can imagine having to do it yourself – and with troublesome students rather than drama teachers! – it would be a sizeable challenge.
