Drama as a formative assessment tool in primary science LIMITED
Limited Capacity seats available

Can drama be used to assess children's conceptual understanding in science sessions? This talk will explore the findings from a recent classroom study which explored the use of drama as a formative assessment tool. We will examine the use of drama as a vehicle for observation and as a means to increase levels of dialogue. Attendees will gain first-hand experience of improvised drama activities within scientific contexts from a child and a teacher's perspective whilst making links with theory.
