The data came from trials with several early childhood and primary classes in contrasting socio-economic areas of Sydney. This article reports on the project at one of these schools. It was a large, outer western Sydney school in a low socio-economic area and had approximately four classes per grade. All teachers were released from classes and observed me as I taught the program with children in one of these classes.
The teachers and I then met for four one-hour meetings after school.
Theory into Practice: Using Drama to Enhance Literacy Development
When trialling the program with children, the method of data collection included children's work samples, anecdotal notes and informal discussion of critical moments recorded at the time and later written up in the researcher's reflective journal. When trialling the program with class teachers, informal talk that occurred during the meetings was also recorded in the researcher's reflective journal and all teachers completed a questionnaire which asked them to rate both the method of professional development and the value of the drama program as a cross-curricular learning medium.
