Foreign teachers bring out students’ drama talents

    For Tarek Abdallah and Maggie Lambo, the 20 or so kids in front of them are full of talent just waiting to be discovered. Two drama teachers, who both come from Uni Whole Child Drama Academy, were invited to teach drama lessons at Yuanling Foreign Language Primary School last week.

    “The kids are very active in classes and sometimes the class can be a bit noisy, but we think we can turn the negative into a positive,” said Abdallah, a Tunisian teacher who has experience in performing and teaching drama.

    Approximately 20 out of more than 150 primary students at the school were selected for the 10-week drama course facilitated in English. The kids are expected to perform a play to showcase their drama skills when the program finishes.

    Abdallah said what he and the other teachers value the most when deciding who will be selected for the course are the kids’ motivation, passion for drama, English level and behavior.

    Lambo, a British teacher who is also the scriptwriter, said the students would be working on various aspects of drama, including creativity, scriptwriting, English, body movement, vocal training and so forth.

    The final play will be a chance to display student’s drama techniques; however, putting on a show is not the teachers’ ultimate goal. “We expect the students to gradually become thinkers and not just follow instructions that other people give them,” said Abdallah.

    Abdallah said he and the other teachers would be discovering the students’ talents instead of just teaching them about drama.

    The Ministry of Education recently issued new policies that require public schools to add more music and arts course as well as incorporate drama, dance, opera and film and television into curriculums, which will greatly advance the importance of such subjects in public schools. Students will have more chances to be cultivated in these areas.
