Thinking as if you are another : drama, persuasive language and pretexts

Gattenhof, Sandra Jane (2014) Thinking as if you are another : drama, persuasive language and pretexts. In Australian Curriculum : Aligning Learning Areas Queensland Studies Authority, 22 March 2014, Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, Brisbane, QLD. (Unpublished)


Using Shaun Tan’s picture book Rules of Summer (2013) as a pretext, this practical session will explore how primary teachers can engage middle and upper primary students in drama-based activities that support student learning and assessment outcomes in both English and The Arts (with a particular emphasis on drama and media arts). The session will explore notions of persuasive text (written and oral), points of view, devised storytelling and embodied learning.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
