This Saturday: Primary Drama ‘Responding Strand’ PD with Irma McCullen

Join us for a morning of Primary Drama networking and professional learning! 

With a focus on ‘Responding’… 

This session is designed for Primary Drama teachers of all experience levels and backgrounds – everyone is welcome! We will take a closer look at realistic and useful ways to cover the Responding Strand in Drama and share assessment ideas and rubrics that we have found successful. A key feature of this session is a space for Primary Drama teachers to share tried and true approaches. We will also explore challenges, experiences and requests for extra support. Often as Primary Drama teachers we don’t have a tribe in our school for collaboration. The intention of this session is to provide that support. We will come together over a light morning tea and network the ‘highs’ and ‘lows’ of teaching Drama, how Drama is set up in our schools, our go to advocacy strategies and other Primary Drama teaching hacks! 

About the presenter:

Irma is currently the full-time Drama Specialist and Arts Leader at Piara Waters Primary School (her dream job). She has taught Drama in various contexts from primary through to secondary and at the tertiary level as a classroom management tutor at ECU. She is passionate about Drama being taught in the primary space for the social, emotional, cultural, and academic benefits it brings. Irma’s Masters studies also led to her interest in using picture books in Drama to promote multicultural literacy.
