Primary & secondary school teachers


• Work with literary texts from a performative perspective.

• Discuss the impact of developing creative and critical thinking skills to enhance the foreign language learning process.

• Explore different ways to work with literature and artistic expression to help children have a cognitive, artistic, emotional and physical learning experience.

• Participate in interactive, performative tasks.

• Think, plan and carry out a variety of creative tasks that involve performativity & literature.


In this workshop we will work with Drama Techniques and literature in the English Class. We will carry out performative activities in collaborative contexts that create room for children & adolescents to express themselves in English. We will introduce literary texts that can be easily performed such as stories, poems, rhymes and plays. We will explore how performative tasks with literature help students develop their own voice, artistic awareness and collaboration.


The workshop has a dialogical and interactive approach. Participants will discuss and apply concepts, work with literature, carry out performative tasks, brainstorm creative teaching ideas & develop supporting teaching materials.
