Drama is a very valuable method that you can use to discuss subjects where personal and social relationships are involved. Basic ideas, feelings, beliefs and values about health can be communicated to people of different ages, education and experience. It is a suitable teaching method for people who cannot read, because they often experience things visually. However the preparation and practice for a drama may cost time and money.
The general principles in drama are:
- Keep the script simple and clear
- Identify an appropriate site
- Say a few words at the beginning of the play to introduce the subject and give the reasons for the drama
- Encourage questions and discussions at the end.
