About the workshop
A 60 minute fully interactive workshop led by two experienced Hopscotch Drama Facilitators.
The ‘Children’s Rights Drama Workshop’ is a perfect accompaniment to Hopscotch’s Rights based production ‘Rights of the Child’. The workshop acts as a springboard into exploring the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child based on key themes from the production.
During the workshop Pupils are encouraged to think ‘what really would it be like without any rights!’ The workshop covers drama conventions such as freeze frame, mime and improvisation. Pupils engage in active listening and offer supportive feedback when watching each others work. Teachers will experience first hand teacher-in-role.
In Children’s Rights Drama Workshop’ pupils fight for their rights, traveling to UN in New York in just 60 minutes!
