What is your advice about? Teaching Practical Drama
1: Start with stillness and silence, not until everyone is in this state can the lesson start.
2: Remember all creative work starts with constraints, they focus the mind. Insist on absolute focus from all.
3: Do not begin with group work until the class are extraordinarily self disciplined. Start with solo work and move to pair work.
4: Remember you are teaching the art of theatre, you are not a social worker or a politically correct ideologue.
5: You and your pupils are searching for beauty. You need to teach them taste, discrimination and give them a taste of the sublime.
