Theatre For Development of Social and Communication Behaviors

This module is offered exclusively by Ms. Suman Bharti as part of a group offering program at Magpie.

Developmental psychologists say that all children learn about the world and how to behave in it through deferred imitation, symbolic play, and dramatic play. These informal methods of learning usually begin to develop when children are as young as three, and continue into the early elementary school years. In a sense, we are all natural-born actors!

The quandary lies not in knowing what [social] skills young people need, but in how best to teach them. We believe drama is the best vehicle for social skills development, because drama involves children in concrete, hands-on practice of behavior....The abstract becomes bodily concrete.

“Through drama, many choices, both positive and negative, can be explored--without real-life consequences harming the participant”
