Attendance + Caring Adult = Positive Relationships That Matter!
enACT has been part of the IS 126Q school community for the past three years, their program model is based on supporting students healthy social and emotional development through drama therapy. enACT has been collaborating with teachers this year during student talent learning periods on a series of activities and conversations on topics such as bullying, respect, social justice and healthy relationships. Students worked on building community amongst their group, forming stronger bonds along with deeper relationships with the adults supporting the talent learning periods. Through a variety of theatre games, students were able to engage with facilitators and dive deep into conversations about their hopes, fears and dreams. Students have also been engaged in discussing the topic around diversity of community, celebrating the human experience that empathy can bring to our daily lives. The dramatic therapy program that enACT implements at IS 126Q has improved student’s connectedness to one another and overall relationship to the school. The conversations have assisted in building community and have supported teachers to develop a better understanding of what their student’s individual needs are. Teachers are further developing strategies and content that can support our students, so that they can develop and grow into socially conscious citizens of our world.
