Empowering, inspiring, transformative and fun are words that come to mind when thinking about the Language in Context 3 week online course facilitated by the very gifted and talented Jodie Whitehurst.
The peaks of heightened aesthetic and whole body engagement Jodie Whitehurst created online was expertly facilitated to explore the what and why of language learning by using the conventions of drama as a conduit for imagination, creativity, safety, fun, confidence building and cooperative/collaborative learning.
The power of storytelling not only comes alive in process drama to learn language, but the collaborative learning is at the heart of our humanity and communication. Whilst now I have strengthened these skills myself, with the support of Jodie and her resources, I miss the online sessions with Jodie. However, I am now equipped to be the facilitator of learning with my own students using the power of process drama to empower language learning.
