Today we discussed the pro's and con's of the Power of Reading lesson sequences. The value of drama based activities cannot be underestimated. It brings the story to life and develops rich vocabulary for our learners. This is especially important for our ESOL learners. I have found that is importamt to follow the sequence of plans. I missed a drama aspect of one lesson, which had a huge impact on the quality of writing. I found that I had to go back and re-do the drama part of the lesson.

Visit the Power of Reading site and familiarise myself with the definition of each aspect of drama.
