DRAMA = Connections
Drama, the imagined and enacted world of human beings, is one of the primary ways children learn about life—about actions and consequences, about customs and beliefs, about others and themselves. Children who create and study drama demonstrate enhanced self-esteem, self-control and empathy. Studies have shown that drama students also demonstrate higher verbal skills and enjoy a higher tolerance toward human diversity. Students in drama also gain an ability to work together to create outcomes that transcend what an individual can accomplish alone.
