b) What is the purpose of using this technique for a drama
project? Using role-play in teaching English Let pupils act out several short plays/acts adapted from children's favorite story books
Explore pupils' imagination (people/situation)
Pupils try out different roles in make-believe play
Using Role Play in the Classroom 1. Decide on the Teaching Materials
The teaching materials should be decided based on students' level and interests, teaching objectives and appropriateness for teaching

2. Select Situations and Create Dialogs
Then a situation or situations to be role played should be selected. For every role plays situation, dialogs should be provided (by the teaching materials or by the teacher) or created by the students themselves.
3. Teach the Dialogs for Role Plays
The teacher needs to teach the vocabulary, sentences, and dialogs necessary for the role play situations. The teacher needs to make sure the students know how to use the vocabulary, sentences and dialogs prior to doing the role play activities, otherwise, the teacher should allow students to ask how to say the words they want to say.

4. Have Students Practice the Role Plays
Students can practice in pairs or in small groups. After they have played their own roles a few times, have them exchange roles. That way, students can play different roles and practice all of the lines in the role play. When students are confident enough to demonstrate or perform in front of the class, the teacher can ask them to do so for their classmates.
5. Have Students Modify the Situations and Dialogs
Once students have finished and become familiar with an original role play situation, they can modify the situations and/or dialogs to create a variation of the original role play.

6. Evaluate and Check Students' Comprehension
Finally, the teacher shall evaluate the effectiveness of the role play activities and check if students have successfully comprehended the meanings of the vocabulary, sentences and dialogs. Teacher can also evaluate students' understanding and comprehension while observing students' interactions, practices, and performances of their role plays.
