Julia Dolan – Dramatic Science

8th April 2022

Julia Dolan | Clonkeen College | Dublin | Ireland

This project consists of a sample of science lessons which use specific drama-based pedagogies (DBP) as seen in the image above. The need for methodologies that optimise students’ authority, engagement and interest in the scientific subjects has been a key goal as the traditional classroom fails to meet the needs of students today. The drama used in this project has been
seen to provide a model for learning, allowing students to communicate the nature of science, advance social interaction and debating. The aim is to attract more students into the world of science, captivating their imagination and creativity.
