Carolyn Bradley – The Role of Drama in Character Education

About the Session

What is good character? Can it be taught? What role can Drama play in developing character in students?

This session will address these questions, drawing on the work of the Jubilee Centre for Character Education’s Framework for Character Education in Schools, and reviewing pivotal research in moral and ethical education and drama education. The session will provide a compelling argument for how vital drama and the arts are in the socio-emotional development of young people.
