dc.description Drama allows students to have an embodied experience with learning. Through simple drama techniques abstract concepts can be made concrete, allowing students to see, touch, discuss, move, and understand through the three thinking styles: Verbal, Object-Visual, and Spatial-Visual. This levels the playing field in terms of inclusion and in terms of Universal Design for Learning. Exploring concepts through theatre easily leads to other educational explorations both traditional and arts-based. In addition, theatre offers students the ability to make choices and develop their critical thinking skills in ways that no other educational tools currently provide. en_US
