Teaching Drama is a great way for children to practice their English in a creative way. If you have a passion for acting and a love of children, this is an excellent project for you!

Our teaching Drama projects are based in primary and secondary schools in Madurai. You'll be introduced to the Principal on your first day and they will discuss your teaching programme with you. The children will be waiting to meet you with wide smiles! Teaching drama is an excellent way of engaging children’s imaginations and encourages them to communicate with few constraints. What’s more, it is very satisfying to watch their confidence grow as they learn and develop new skills.

Dance, drama and music can help teach children life skills, help with their communication and socialisation. Children in India love to perform, whether it is singing or acting on stage, so they will be eagerly awaiting their every lesson with you!

WHAT YOU'LL GAIN FROM DOING THIS PROJECT:

  • An exciting, never-to-be-forgotten adventure into beautiful India and it's fascinating culture.
  • The enormous satisfaction of helping disadvantaged children and knowing that you made a difference to them.
  • New skills, more confidence, a greater understanding of a different culture, invaluable personal and professional development.
  • An entry on your CV or résumé that will put you head and shoulders above most others in the job market
  • And best of all ... an unforgettable experience!


WORK CONTENT:
You'll teach drama to children from the ages of 5 to 12, mainly at matriculation schools where English is taught as the main language. The Principals at the schools are very keen for the children to develop their acting skills and you'll have free rein on devising your own lessons. You may even be able to put on a production at the school. This can be discussed with the Principal at your induction. You'll normally teach 4 to 5 classes per day.

At some of our schools in our other destinations, volunteers and pupils together have produced plays and concerts, and performances have been put on in the evenings for parents, students and visitors. The parents have loved it! Because the schools are poor, the volunteers and children have had to be very creative in putting together costumes and sets, but all productions have been a resounding success!

Volunteers have found that producing short plays written by the children that address local social issues has been a successful means in educating the children on issues such as AIDS awareness, cultural relationships, peer pressures and bullying. It gives the children an informal forum and a means of sharing their concerns and learning to deal with issues.

You don't need any qualifications to participate on a teaching project but a great way to become more confident in the classroom is to take part in a weekend TEFL course. Not only will this help you with how to go about lesson planning, it will also give you an introduction about teaching abroad as well as ways to get the children inspired and eager to learn!
