Drama is a powerful way of knowing, which harnesses feelings, thinking and willing an enquiry into the social world. Drama provides a rich opportunity for language development since language is shaped by social role, relationship, context and intention. Drama uses the full range of human signing not merely words, but gestures, actions, spatial relationships, sound, silence and so on. It therefore plays to students’ strengths in reading human interaction.
