This action research project provides a review of literature and detailed discussion of data gathered while investigating what effect practical drama activities have in secondary lessons other than drama. The key elements studied were: the development of students’ transferable skills, student engagement and students’ retention of subject knowledge. In this project, secondary teachers of non-drama subjects collaborated with the drama specialist in order to develop their pedagogy and provide a varied teaching style for students across Key Stage 3 (KS3) and Key Stage 4 (KS4). Data were gathered using lesson observations, teacher interviews and student interviews. The project is intended to provide evidence that drama pedagogy is a valid way of enhancing student engagement and learning in all subjects. The results can also be used to act as argument for further study as well as to promote the inception of similar initiatives in other education institutions in order to develop a varied teaching style in collaboration with educational drama specialists.
