Course Outline

Creative Speech in the Main Lessons is important for teachers who would like to enliven their performing skills and improve their knowledge of the diverse trove of literature underpinning the Steiner curriculum. Teachers will be introduced to the foundations of artistic speech distinguishing the epic, lyric and dramatic styles. Participants will gain practical experience in creative speech exercises, gestures and movement to help enliven their delivery of literary works introduced throughout five core main lessons covered in primary and early high school. Resources from writers such as Pablo Neruda, Blake, Yeats, Shakespeare and Walter de la Mare will be studied, among others.

This course requires participants to take part in physical exercises including modified Greek gymnastics, javelin, and discus.
