Dramanet Summary to 21st December [Final Summary for 2016]

Dramanet Final Summary for 2016 …to 21st December

What happened there?!? …just like that it seems, the school year has finished for us all!?!?  

Whether you wrapped up the school year over a week (or more!!) ago or but a day or two ago (which I know was the case for some of you poor, tortured souls!!) I hope you are now finding time to re-charge and shift your focus to great times with the nearest and dearest in your lives.

I’d like to extend a massive thank you to everyone who has started, contributed or responded to, or shared their point of view in our discussions this year; it is all the many of you and your constant sharing and giving which make DramaNet the highly successful professional network and one of the best forms of constant and on-going professional learning that it is. Thank you all!

Here’s an overview of some recent posts which would be worth having quick one-click access to for when you next need to refer back to these…

For Primary Teachers: Curriculum Level "Rubrics"

  • A recent question posted related to drama rubrics and how to create junior marking schedules that incorporate multiple curriculum levels.
  • This would also be one of the most common questions asked by primary teachers who incorporate drama in their classroom programmes, so while its focus was by junior secondary teachers, I’d highly encourage our primary subscribers to have a look at the perspectives and templates shared so far on this discussion to inform your own rubric design.  

Finally, just this morning I shared some really interesting stats tables from our recent Arts Online team milestone report for the Ministry of Education, I hope [whether you are new to our Arts Online/Dramanet whanau or if, like me, you’ve been a subscriber since those very early years of the project] that these fun facts and glimpses of insight give you a sense of the bigger picture and inner workings of the project. I also hope you’ll all be affirmed and proud that YOU are a key part and reason for the success of the community too. This site, this forum, your contributions, your viewership and your involvement personify the Ako that is so central to effective learning, no matter what stage of life we’re all at.
