Creative writing and theater in education, field research with kindergarten students
Τhe topic of this thesis is "Creative writing in theater and education with field
research in Kindergarten students", the topic in question is topical because in
contemporary society theater is a useful educational asset, which can build
consciousness and personalilities. There are elements in common between theater in
education and creative writing which we will clarify in the creative part through
practical work in Creative writing and theater which were carried out for kindergarten
students with the aim of creating a new perception of the world where didacticism
will not fit but the education that originates within them as well as instill in them a
passion for creative writing and theater.
In the first part Creative writing and theater in education will be presented. Firstly,
an extensive reference to the concept of Creative writing will be made and
subsequently we will present its usefulness in preschool education and more
specifically at the kindergarten age, as well as the significant role that the
kindergarten teacher-animator has for his dissemination and eventually the
relationship of Creative writing with literary reading will be presented. Thereinafter,
the second chapter will concern the theater as well as its connection with education.
More specifically, in the beginning, the functionality of theater in education will be
presented, along with the benefits and purposes of theatrical play from the first grades
of kindergarten, which is a dreamlike and tempting method of getting to know the
child from an early age through knowledge, art and life, as theatrical play is a means
of communication as well as cultivation of human relationships and also contributes
to child's emotional development. In addition, it is a pedagogical function which gives
children the opportunity of learning how to do exist and work in the group based on
their needs, activating their imagination. Afterwards, there will be a reference to the
role of the animator not only in the theatrical play but also to the dramatics in
education in general terms as well as in educational drama (definition, what the role
is, etc.). At the end of the second chapter, it will be presented how Theater and
Creative Writing, which have a lot in common, can be combined.
On completing the second part, which is also the practical part, we will record some
elementary creative writing activities that were successfully carried out for my
students and their results, as well as some games called: "fairytale cooking" in which
the children, according to some fairy tales, "cook" with utensils for imagination,
thoughts, emotions, with materials such as playing, interaction, rhythm, dynamic
images, role-playing, improvisations, dramatisations. The current assignment will be
finalised with some theatrical games along with their results? Outcomes for
kindergarten students. Last but not least, there will be a list of photos accompanying
their results/outcomes in the appendix.
