While it has been proved that the application of theatre methods for the teaching of the school curriculum can have exceptional results in the improvement of the class environment and the development of the basic skills of the children (especially in STEAM ) as well as in the inclusion of immigrant and refugee children that do not have the necessary language skills and need more non-linguistic stimuli, the use of theatre is not widespread in schools, the teacher training in the issue is scarce and the available resources are very fragmented. This project is aiming to mainstream the use of theatre techniques in secondary school education through the development of the appropriate tools and networks. In this way it is aiming to contribute to the increase of the attractiveness of the STEAM , to improve the attractiveness and the school performance of the children in basic skills and to improve the school performance of students that need more non-linguistic stimuli.
In order to achieve these objectives, the project is going to develop a methodology related with the application of theatre in the secondary school classroom that will be practice-oriented and will cover all the STEAM curriculum of the secondary school with scenarios, examples, best practices etc in cooperation with other STEAM methods. On the basis of this methodology, it is going to organize teacher training workshops and also e-learning courses in order to train teachers on how they can implement the methodology.
