Primary Literacy and Drama

Description

In this episode of Action! Teacher Video, Bruce Warland and Vickie Crombie present a film that looks into the idea of using drama to stimulate children's writing.

The video, part of a unique showcase of videos made by teachers about their work in schools, features action research that was carried out at Chad Vale Primary school in Birmingham - a one-form entry school with 210 pupils from a wide range of cultural and social backgrounds.

The research was came about as a result of two initiatives undertaken at the school and aimed to assess the impact that the use of drama has on raising achievement in writing.

Presenter Xanthe Steen is joined in the studio by Bruce and Vickie, education consultant Adrienne Jones and AST Lou Harrison, to discuss the video.

Amongst other things, the group reflect on how Teacher Video can be used for assessment and CPD.
