Successful completion of the Certificate level will include identifying a research question to explore with a chosen group of students. The overall purpose of the action research is for us to learn, individually and collectively, about how rehearsal room pedagogies might bring about change at pupil, school and/or community level.
For example, “How can RSC rehearsal-room approaches improve the writing skills of my Year 4 class?” or “To what extent can these approaches build confidence in my GCSE class to offer personal interpretations?”.
You will then reflect on your chosen aspect of your teaching by observing outcomes, asking questions of your students, and noting changes. Further details on how to present these findings will be given during the course and the Education team will be on hand to provide help and support as necessary.
