Department of English, NTNU
The research is aimed at exploring what impacts educational drama, based on stories, makes on children’s English learning. To understand how educational drama can be practically applied to the elementary school classrooms and how students learn under such contexts, the researcher, first, merged two stories, Little Red Riding Hood and the Selfish Giant, with process-oriented drama activities to design an English course including dialogues, short story texts, songs, chants, poems, letters, etc, and then taught it to a fifth grade class in New Taipei City. The study was of one semester’s duration, and Action Research was used as the method of the inquiry. The data the researcher gathered from students’questionnaires, interviews, as well as their creative writing pieces, along with the observer’s interviews and the researcher’s teaching journals, demonstrate that educational drama can increase students’ class participation and offer students with different language proficiencies a chance to succeed in doing what they are excellent at. Finally, the researcher also made recommendations, derived from the reflections and the findings of the study, for those elementary school teachers who are keen to incorporate drama activities into their English curriculum.
