In this Masterclass, we will have an overview of what students and teachers can gain from roleplay activities in the classroom, looking in particular at roleplay as a part of Task-Based Learning and as a student-centred activity. We will also be looking at roleplay in relation to consolidating knowledge and usage of grammar

We’ll be talking about how roleplays can be done online, and also talking about the importance of drama-based activities in relation to motivation, keeping students engaged, exploring empathy and the relevance of using roleplay to explore students’ feelings towards current affairs and hot topics in the news.

If it is not too boiling in Naples, I may also wear my glam rock fake fur coat to show that teaching roleplay online can also involve a costume change…oh and you may meet my pet cat Kenneth Branagh…he’s never too far away from my lap when I’m working online.

Preparing for the Workshop

Our Masterclass workshops are typically delivered in 90 mins.

At Gallery Teachers, we endorse the philosophy of building on your previous knowledge and experience as opposed to just imparting knowledge on you. 

Therefore, in order to prepare you for the webinar and help you activate what you already know about the topic, we will suggest two to four reflective questions for you to consider before you join the event.

You will also be given the opportunity to post your reflections, along with any questions you may already have at the pre-watching stage, to the discussion forum. 

The reflective questions, as well as ideas and shared experiences posted to the forum by attendees, will be used in the real-time Q&A session in order to generate an engaging and meaningful discussion, involving the presenter and teachers from around the world. 

After the event, the forum discussion will take on a life of its own and teachers will be encouraged to continue posting their experiences, reflections and questions related to the topic of the webinar. So, if you feel strongly about the topic, we will make it possible for you to take the discussion beyond the scheduled workshop and continue sharing your ideas with like-minded teachers and teacher trainers from other countries

Chris has been a fantastic speaker. His masterclass was full of ideas and very inspirational. If you are the kind of imaginative teacher, you need very little preparation, and then you let your students fly high!

Chris Bartlet delivered and excellent masterclass with great ideas and useful guidelines. I found his delivery style very engaging and encouraging to delve deeper into the very useful aspects of the use of roleplaying in the English classroom. I highly recommend this masterclass. Thank you very much Chris.
