In this course, Tamil Language preschool teachers will explore the use of drama strategies in a preschool setting to create a quality learning environment. This is done through infusing a developmentally and culturally appropriate drama curriculum, so as to foster imagination, creativity, spontaneity and interest in the use of Tamil language in preschool children, based on NEL Framework on creative expression.
Learners will also look at ways to use children’s literature and other text resources to create developmentally appropriate drama activities to help promote the use of Tamil language in preschool children.
Note: This course will be conducted via online learning until further notice.
At the end of the course, learners will be able to:
