Making the most of the teachers’ voice and body language


In this interactive and highly practical workshop, I reflect on the nature of teacher development in terms of theatrical or ‘performance’ skills; drawing on research, I will show how these qualities are an essential component in the growth of a teacher towards a more creative and effective practice. In reflecting on nonverbal behaviour in teaching.
I draw on research from the classroom (see, for example, Neill and Caswell, 1993. Body Language for Competent Teachers) to illustrate, with a wealth of actual examples from the classroom, the effectiveness - or otherwise – of the teacher’s non-verbal behaviour.


Extra! Extra!!!: Luke Prodromou and friends will end the day with a performance by the English Language Voice Theatre: a theatrical demonstration is a perfect illustration of the importance of the use of Voice and Body Language in teacher development and collaboration

Performance by English Language Voice Theatre: ‘Women Come and Go: from Byron to Eliot’

Four comic sketches inspired by some of the greatest writers in English: Byron, Wilde and Eliot: the eternal theme is, of course, love: in this new show, we see women in and out of love, talking of men and Michelangelo; looking for the ideal man: is it the young good-looking one or the one with a sexy name: Is it Ernest, John or Alfred? Come along and find out the answer: as well as getting your school year off with a smile!

Performed by: Anastasia Karaoglani, Aspa Georgopoulou, Vicky Saran, Christos Mavridis and Luke Prodromou.
