Activities of the To Be project in the Lužánky Leisure Time Activity Centre have been built upon the organisation’s long lasting Drama in Education practice and further developed the co-operation with schools by providing training for teachers and realising Drama in Education programmes for their pupils. The Well-Being Curriculum was developed for and during six encounters with the teachers of five different primary schools in Brno and surrounding areas, over the period of one year. The participants involved in the encounters were primary school teachers, headmasters and specialised educators.
During the encounters we focused on exploring the topic of well-being in the school environment and mapping the potential of Drama in Education methods in supporting it.
In the downloadable document, we would like to present the structure and activities of six encounters – sessions – with related aims and objectives. The encounters had a prepared plan but also a space for variation, based on the needs of the specific group we worked with. The encounters built on each other, we were continuously monitoring and evaluating the participants’ work and the outcomes. The prevailing methodology used was Drama in Education techniques, emphasising play and experience. Discussions and both collective and individual reflections of the process were crucial.
The core of the executive team consisted of four drama teachers with experience in teacher-training and educating teaching students.
The curriculum is accompanied by videos from the encounters that represent the process and individual techniques to provide a better understanding.
